    The Letter (Warner Brothers, 1940). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Bette Davis, as Leslie Crosbie, gets entangled in her own web of lies and deceit in this brilliant adaptation of Somerset Maugham's play. Events unfold on a rubber plantation in Malaya, as Crosbie murders her lover Geoffrey Hammond (David Newell) in the opening scene. Herbert Marshall, Gale Sondergaard, and James Stephenson co-star. This sheet has fold wear with minor chips, small missing corners at the top, and a tear in the the top left corner. It has been beautifully and professionally restored, and the central image of Davis with the smoking gun is sumptuous. Fine on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
