DescriptionKiss of Death (20th Century Fox, 1947). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55").
This poster brings bright color to the film noir genre, alluding to the action and drama within the film. In a plea deal, Victor Mature as convicted jewel thief Nick Bianco decides to help the DA bring down the psychotic Tommy Udo before Udo can take vengeance upon him. Richard Widmark made his big screen debut with this film and delivered one of the cinema's greatest and most psychotic performances as Udo. This Italian 2 - fogli has received touchup to a splice applied to chips in the right middle fold braced with masking tape on the verso. Signs of handling includes edge wear, slight fold wear and separations, mild creases. There are small tears and chips, edge toning, as well as a couple of tax stamps on the right side of the poster.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
