    White Heat (Warner Brothers, 1949). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    James Cagney turns in one of the most memorable performances of his career as the clearly psychotic gangster Cody Jarrett, starring in the last of the classic gangster films from Warner Brothers. Under the skillful direction of Raoul Walsh, the film elevated the gangster genre to great art and gave a social significance to the effects of mental illness and crime. Great scenes from the film fill this half sheet format, which has been touched up to correct a few small tears in the borders, pinholes in the corners, and a vertical surface cut in the left image area. There was a tear from the bottom border up to Virginia Mayo's credit, and the borders and lower white background have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.

    Estimate: $200 - $400.
