    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, 1947). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A, William Rose Artwork.
    Director Jacques Tourneur creates a dark world of blackmail, murder, lust, jealousy, and revenge in this seminal film noir. Based on Daniel Mainwaring's novel Build My Gallows High, this haunting story is told from the point of view of the doomed Jeff Bailey, played by Robert Mitchum in his first starring role. He recalls his involvement with the sadistic gangster Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas) and his equally bad girlfriend Kathie Moffat (Jane Greer). Caught in a deadly love triangle, Bailey's fate is sealed, giving the film an even bleaker mood than most films from the genre--an unforgettable classic. The style A half sheet offered here shows creasing in the borders and at the folds, edge wear, border tears, light smudges and staining.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
