    Description

    The Glass Key (Paramount, 1948). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. First Post-War Release French Moyenne (23.5" X 31.5") Roger Soubie Artwork. From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    A film noir treasure, this picture is based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett and stars Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, and Brian Donlevy. Even more, William Bendix gives a scene-stealing performance as a brutal henchman. But the real star was Veronica Lake, and French artist Roger Soubie brought his incredible style to her peek-a-boo portrait on this classic image. Signs of handling includes some fold wear and separation, small tears, minor chips, as well as unobtrusive stains. Also present is mild toning.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
