DescriptionKey Largo (Warner Brothers, 1948). Insert (14" X 36").
This three color rarity is a scarce poster to find! It's rumored that the entirety of Key Largo was shot on set at Warner Brothers Studios in a scant 78 days, a feat that only underscores the professionalism of the movie's amazing cast. Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore, and Claire Trevor are all featured on this exceptional original release insert. This very rare insert is one of only a few copies we've seen in that it is not black and red as almost all were printed but this is in three colors! Why there was a second printing in three colors and why have so few been seen through the years is a mystery to collectors. The poster is rolled with a tear in the bottom border just into the art. There is also some crimping within the poster as well. Rolled, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
