DescriptionThe Blue Dahlia (Paramount, 1946). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled story is well served with the hard-edged performances drawn out by director George Marshall from a superior cast. The mystery concerns a recently discharged military man played by Alan Ladd, who returns home to find his wife has been unfaithful and is presently carrying on with club owner Howard da Silva. After stomping out into the rain, Ladd learns his wife has been murdered, and must race to prove his innocence before the police pick him up. Veronica Lake plays a mysterious blonde who also has an interest in Ladd. One of the great noir trilogy films of the Ladd-Lake teaming. The cards generally show slight edge wear, very small corner bends, and a few minor nicks and tears. One of the cards has some surface paper loss in the top border, one has a thin surface scuff along the bottom, and another card has a staple hole in Alan Ladd's head. Very Fine-.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
