    Tales of Manhattan (Titanus, 1949). First Post-War Release Italian 4 - Fogli (49.5" X 72.5") Averardo Ciriello Artwork.
    This star-studded film tells the story of a "cursed" tailcoat, and the fortunes and travails that befall those who possess it. The cast list reads like a "Who's Who" of Hollywood, including such luminaries as Charles Boyer, Rita Hayworth, Thomas Mitchell, Ginger Rogers, Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton, Edward G. Robinson, W. C. Fields, Paul Robeson, Ethel Waters, and Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. Averardo Ciriello provided the striking imagery of Rita Hayworth for this Italian poster, a Heritage first. Signs of light handling include pinholes in the borders and a couple in the background, a small chip in the top right corner, a tear in the border at the top vertical fold, and a stain to the right of the Hayworth's chin. Any fan of the Golden Age of Hollywood will appreciate this excellent opportunity. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
