    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1946). French Grande (47" X 63"). This classic Howard Hawks mystery/thriller was based on Raymond Chandler's first novel and introduced audiences to the hard-boiled, cynical private eye Philip Marlowe, masterfully portrayed by Humphrey Bogart. This was also the second film featuring the classic teaming of Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and their screen chemistry was absolutely electric. This beautiful French Grande with artwork by Vincent Cristellys is one of the better international posters that was done for the film. This copy in mounted on European linen, meaning it does not have the Japanese paper buffer between the poster and the linen. It has very minimal touch-up to minor border tears and foldline wear. The linen has been trimmed to the edge of the poster. Very Fine+ on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
