Description

    Scarlet Street (Universal, 1945). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). Fritz Lang masterfully directs this bleak film about an ordinary man, Christopher Cross (Edward G. Robinson), who is in a loveless marriage, and is lured into an affair when he meets a woman named Kitty (Joan Bennett). Kitty manipulates Cross into embezzling money from his employer in order to pay for her lavish lifestyle. When Cross realizes he has been manipulated, he starts on a downward spiral, ultimately leading to murder by the film's end, where he's so haunted by guilt and remorse that he suffers a mental breakdown. One of 1940s greatest film noirs. Prior to restoration, this poster had fold wear with crossfold separations, there were some small holes in the background area, creases on the top, bottom, and along Bennett's legs, and a tear on the top border going into the field. This very rare six sheet undoubtedly provides the best art for any of the posters on this title. The images of Robinson and Bennett are truly amazing! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
