DescriptionThe Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (Warner Brothers, 1938). Horizontal French Double Grande (62" X 92") Dori Artwork.
Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson, two of Screenland's toughest gangsters, starred in five pictures together and make an exceptional duo in this gritty crimer. Dr. T.S. Clitterhouse's (Robinson) fascination with the inner workings of the criminal mind leads him to enter the underworld himself as the leader of a gang. Hardened thug "Rocks" Valentine (Humphrey Bogart) has an eye on the top spot himself, however, and soon moves to eliminate Clitterhouse. In this first time offer from Heritage, French artist Dori has provided exceptional portraits of not just our two lead players, but also the likes of Claire Trevor, Allen Jenkins, and Gale Page. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes, fold wear, and some tears and chipping in the borders and folds. There is a 12" X 6" area of paper loss at the bottom in Anatole Litvak's credit, but this does not affect the eye-catching image in any way. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
