    High Sierra (Warner Brothers, 1941). Insert (14" X 36"). Released just prior to The Maltese Falcon, the movie that would make Humphrey Bogart a superstar, this was the last time Bogie would receive second billing, in this case just after Ida Lupino. In this taut crime drama, Bogart plays Roy "Mad Dog" Earle, a criminal whose release from prison is arranged so that he can aid in an upcoming robbery. When things go wrong, Earle hides out in the Sierra mountains, but things are complicated when he becomes personally involved with a local farming family. This classic linen-textured insert had edge and fold wear, a small hole above the title, some paper loss on the reverse, a small tear near Lupino's shoulder, and one near Bogart's left hand. Professional restoration has addressed these issues, resulting in an insert that is clean, attractive, and eminently displayable, an exceptional piece from one of Bogart's best films. Of all of the posters produced for this film, the insert sports the best image with Bogart leaning on his shotgun, ready to rob banks as "Mad Dog." This poster is also incredibly rare with only a few copies known to exist. Very Good+ on Paper.
