    Description

    No Way Out (20th Century Fox, 1950). One Sheet (27" X 41") Paul Rand Artwork.
    In this landmark film about racial tensions, Richard Widmark plays a wounded robber who spews racist slurs at the doctor (Sidney Poitier) assigned to care for him in the police hospital. When the criminal's brother dies, who is also in the same ward, the bigot holds the physician responsible. Linda Darnell plays Widmark's girlfriend, who tires of his hateful ways. Designed by Paul Rand, this engaging poster features a set of watchful eyes (maybe Darnell's) and a set of telltale empty handcuffs, all against a giant red arrow pointing in the direction of "nowhere." Prior to restoration, this poster showed fold wear, a few staple holes at the edges, and a tear from the upper right border into the background. There were a few tape stains in the background and some chips and paper loss at the borders. The poster had a chip on the left side of the center horizontal fold with a vertical tear in the word "No." There has been airbrushing to the white and red backgrounds, as well as the title. Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
