    Description

    Murder, My Sweet (RKO, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Dick Powell plays Phillip Marlowe, the hardened private detective made famous amongst mystery fans in Raymond Chandler's thrilling novel series. Known mainly as a "song and dance man" after starring in several Warner Brothers musicals, Powell's career was in serious decline when director Edward Dmytryk took a chance and cast him as Chandler's popular antihero. Of course, the studio wasn't so sure that was such a good idea. In fact, 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. Despite the studio's misgivings, what Dmytryk and Powell produced is now considered one of the great landmark movies of the early film noir genre. Touchup has been applied to the folds, some pinholes in the borders and background, and a few of minor chips in the vertical borders and center crossfold. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
