    Description

    The Letter (Warner Brothers, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This brilliant adaptation brought Somerset Maugham's play to life on the big screen, headlined with a superb performance by Bette Davis in the starring role. Her portrayal of Leslie Crosby, the murderous wife of a plantation owner, would prove to be one of the actress' most riveting roles. With two stunning images of the leading femme fatale, this one sheet shows slight edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, a few creases, and pinholes. There is some faint writing bleedthrough, slight surface rippling, and faint staining to the lower left. The poster also has a couple of pieces of archival tape on the verso. Folded, Fine+.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
