    Description

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame (RKO, 1946). Very Good on Linen. First Post-War Release Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55") Anselmo Ballester Artwork.
    This is a first time offer from Heritage for this astounding work of art by master Anselmo Ballester. The first incarnation of the tale in the sound era, the film presents a daringly different take on the legendary hunchback than the more monstrous character immortalized in 1923 by Lon Chaney. Charles Laughton's Quasimodo is a tender, almost poetic creature who falls in love with the gypsy girl Esmeralda (Maureen O'Hara). When she is wrongly accused of murder and sentenced to the gallows, Quasimodo rescues her, at the cost of his own life. The poster has been mounted on linen and was missing the top-left eighth of the poster which contains the artist's signature as well as the spear point and left tower of the cathedral. Prior to restoration there were also tears, edge and fold wear, chips in the folds, and a small amount of missing paper in the title. The restoration work was beautifully done and the poster displays very well.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
