DescriptionThe African Queen (United Artists, 1952). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Humphrey Bogart may have risen to fame playing gangsters during the 1930s, but it was his 1952 performance that won him an Oscar for portraying a drunken riverboat captain on a mission, accompanied by spinster Katharine Hepburn, to sink a German battleship during WWI. This remains one of Bogart's and Hepburn's best pictures, and this one sheet dazzles with all of the action that John Huston's film promised. Professional restoration has repaired such indications of use as tears in the interior, chips in the border and crossfolds, and pinholes. Other corrections have been applied to paper loss along the lower border and a trim in the upper border. The border have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
