DescriptionPickup (Columbia C.E.I.A.D., 1952). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Anselmo Ballester Artwork.
Anselmo Ballester's incredible artwork explodes off this poster with its gripping, tense-filled imagery. Low-budget auteur Hugo Haas sets the standard for his body of work in the "bad girl" genre with his first American film. Haas directs and co-stars with Beverly Michaels in the tale of a railroad dispatcher (Haas) seduced by a sleazy tramp (Michaels), who is after the money he has saved. Since Haas is going deaf, Michaels and her new lover (Allan Nixon) talk openly about murdering him...without realizing that he really can hear! Haas followed this up with such titles as One Girl's Confession, Thy Neighbor's Wife, The Other Woman and Hit and Run. Restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, and moderate tears. There were small chips in the folds, including in Beverly Michaels' chin and in Allan Nixon's forehead. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
