DescriptionThe Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1946). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall are superb in Howard Hawks' film noir adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel. Bogart is Philip Marlowe, a private detective who, along with Bacall's Vivian Rutledge, finds himself caught in a web of lies, murder, lust, greed, and blackmail. This one sheet featuring a portrait of the two stars is a must for noir fans! There is professional touchup to the folds, a couple of small chips at the top edge, and two tape stains in the lower border. The borders have intermittent airbrushing. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
