DescriptionThe Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1946). Fine+ on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
Although following the plot of this classic film noir epic can be more than a little challenging, there's no denying the sizzling chemistry between the stars, and real-life couple, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. The screen practically ignites each time this classic pair is together. In addition, this movie gave Bogart a marvelous opportunity to demonstrate his considerable range as an actor, from tough-guy private eye to suave romantic lead, with a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. A keystone film noir thriller, this movie should be on every cinemaphile's short-list of favorite films. This highly desirable half sheet, with beautiful portrait shots of Bogart and Bacall, has been restored to address light edge wear, pinholes in the borders, and a couple of tears in the right border, one of which extends into Lauren Bacall's hair. Once trimmed, the top border has been replaced and added to during restoration. Fine+ on Paper.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
