DescriptionSahara (Columbia, 1943). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
An American tank unit becomes a microcosm of World War II's Allied forces when Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) and his crew pick up British, French, South African, and Sudanese soldiers, along with German and Italian captives, after the fall of Tobruk in North Africa. When they find a much needed well, they also find an entire German battalion heading their way. This poster features a dramatic image of Bogart, who considered the film to be one of his very best. Certainly rare, this is only the second time Heritage has ever offered this style B one sheet, a far less common sight at auction than the style A. Touchup has been applied to fold wear and some separation, and there is intermittent airbrushing in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
