    Description

    Murder, My Sweet (RKO, 1944). Insert (14" X 36"). This classic starred Dick Powell as Phillip Marlowe, the hard-boiled private detective "anti Hero" made famous by author Raymond Chandler's crime novels. Powell's career was in serious decline when director Ed Dmytryk took a chance and cast him in the lead as the famed detective. The studio wasn't so sure the director had made a wise decision. They even renamed the movie from its original title, "Farewell My Lovely," because they were afraid the public might think it was another Powell musical. What was produced is considered to be one of the great early landmark movies of the film noir genre. This folded insert shows the most minimal wear including a bit of an impact to the lower right corner, some minor creasing just starting to show in the corners, and a few very tiny tears in the borders one of which slightly extends into the upper artwork. On the reverse, there is a tiny bit of gray paint and two pieces of tape used at one time to hang this insert in a frame. Very Fine.
