Description

    The Big Heat (Columbia, 1953). Insert (14" X 36").
    Tough cop Dave Bannion (Glenn Ford) investigates the death of a police sergeant, but when things get too hot, his boss takes him off the case. Then his wife is killed by a mob hit meant for him, and he goes on a rampage to bring the bad guys to justice. Gloria Grahame is the disfigured ex-moll of gangster Lee Marvin (who shows up in the small inset on the left). Fritz Lang directs what was considered an extremely violent film for its day. If you're looking for crime-noir paper, you can't do much better than this tense insert, the first we have ever offered at Heritage. It shows edge wear, one pinhole, creasing, and border tears. There is some smudging with stains. From the collection of noted film historian Richard Schickel. Folded, Fine+.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
