    Description

    The Big Shot (Warner Brothers, Post-War 1949). French Grande (47" X 63").
    In this classic gangster picture, Humphrey Bogart plays three-time loser Duke Berne, a mob leader who tries to get his old gang back together after a stretch in stir. He falls in love with Lorna Fleming (Irene Manning), wife of a crooked lawyer (Stanley Ridges) who sees to it that Berne is sent back up, this time for life. An escape from the joint, and a trip to the mountains with Lorna, complicates things in ways Berne never foresaw. The beautiful grande offered here, boasting lovely art by Boris Grisson, from the first French release of the film, had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with crossfold separation, small tears in the top left and top center, and a small chip in the top right. Expert professional restoration has addressed all of these slight flaws, resulting in a poster that looks virtually as good as the day it was printed. Additionally, there is a crease in the left side that occurred after linen backing. Nevertheless, this is a great poster that any film fan will be proud to own. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
