    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1951). Fine on Linen. French Grande (43.5" X 63") Roger Soubie Artwork.
    Paper for this film is always highly prized, and this exquisite French poster with artwork by Roger Soubie is no exception. The picture was nominated for an outstanding eleven Oscars, reaping praise for its magnificent combination of great stars, performances, direction, screenplay...and great posters! Gloria Swanson enjoys the role of a lifetime as aging silent screen siren Norma Desmond in this gripping film noir thriller, playing her part to the fullest in a tale of madness, obsession, and murder. Restored with great skill, this first time offering from Heritage has been skillfully restored to address fold wear and separation, pinholes, tears into the interior, and chips. the top and bottom borders were once trimmed by approximately 1.5" but have been replaced during conservation. The borders and white background have been airbrushed.


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