Description

    The Big Shot (Warner Brothers, 1942). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). By the time Humphrey Bogart made The Big Shot in 1942, he had already perfected his tough guy persona with roles in such classic gangster films as The Petrified Forest, San Quentin, Angels with Dirty Faces, The Roaring Twenties, and High Sierra. This, then, is Bogie at his best, as three-time loser Duke Berne, back in jail after an ill-advised armored car heist. After he busts out, though, he has to choose between staying with his girl (Irene Manning) and stepping forward to prevent a friend from taking the rap for a murder that he committed. This was, arguably, Bogart's most exciting and prolific period as a movie actor: just after The Maltese Falcon, which shot him to the heights of Hollywood fame, and just before Casablanca, which permanently placed his star among the true immortals of the silver screen. This highly desirable midget window card, with multiple images of this luminous star, is in nigh-pristine condition, with little save for some minor toning at the top to mention. For all you Bogart fans out there, this is a piece you won't want to miss. From the Collection of Denver Sherry. Near Mint.
