    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41") From the Warner Media Archive..
    The onscreen chemistry between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall was electrifying and director Howard Hawks used it to perfection in this film noir classic.. It was a mystery/thriller based on Raymond Chandler's first novel that was so complicated that rumor has it, even Chandler didn't know who killed the chauffeur. Bogart is introduced to audiences as the unsentimental, hard-nosed and cynical private eye Philip Marlowe. This is the second film featuring Bogart and Bacall, solidifying the duo as one of the best in the business. Professional restoration has addressed fold wear, pinholes into the interior, and chips in the borders and folds. The poster also had tape stains, though these have been rendered unnoticeable after touchup. Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
