    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, R-1953). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Film Noir.
    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. And for good measure, Fleming is pushing away from Douglas as though he'd just downed a bucket of garlic pasta. You'll need this one even if you have the original to start some lively conversations when poster collectors visit, or if you simply want the title covered with a poster that's just as hard to find as the original! An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight fold separation and fold wear, pinholes, or very minor tears. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Folded, Very Fine-.
