    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, R-1953). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The two ad campaigns from RKO for the original release in 1947 and for this re-release just six years later should be studied in film school. They could hardly be more different. The original opted for a insouciant, cigarette-dangling-from-the-mouth Mitchum, glaring at a nastily scowling Jane Greer, with Rhonda Fleming and Kirk Douglas liplocked in a classic Hollywood clinch. For the new campaign, they emblazoned this poster with an exploitation inspired tagline, "Shock-Story of a Crime-Filled Romance." Gone is the cigarette, gone is Greer's scowl, replaced by a redrawing of an almost smiling, pleasant woman. Professional touchup has been applied to the folds, staple holes in the borders and interior, and a small hole near the lower right corner. There was some bleedthrough from writing on the verso at the bottom, and the poster's borders have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


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