    Description

    The Big Sleep (Warner Brothers, 1947). French Grande (46.5" X 63.5"). Vincent Cristellys Artwork.
    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. Touchup has been applied to the folds and a small tear in the lip of Bogart's top left image. Unrestored signs of use include a few scattered pinholes and a minor chip at the top. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
