    Description

    Spellbound (Columbia, R-1954). Italian 2 - Fogli (39.25" X 55") Anselmo Ballester Artwork.
    Gregory Peck stars as the newly appointed director of a mental asylum and he proves to be incompetent in his role, raising the suspicion of one of the doctors on staff (Ingrid Bergman). Although Bergman suspects Peck could be a highly disturbed amnesiac who murdered the real director, things are complicated by her romantic feelings toward him. Surrealist Salvador Dali lends his talents to the remarkable dream sequences in the film, adding just the right touch to a movie that is set in a mental institution. Certainly a thematic illustration, Italian artist Anselmo Ballester hones in on the plot's whirlwind of twists and turns with his stunning portraits of Peck and Bergman. This scarce poster is rarely seen in auction, and looks great after touchup was applied to pinholes in the borders, chips and small tears in the borders, minor crossfold chips, and a couple of diagonal scratches in the title area. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
