    Description

    The Blue Dahlia (Paramount, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The third picture to feature the dynamic film noir team of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, this murder mystery centers around the shady happenings at the nightclub the Blue Dahlia. Ladd stars as Johnny Morrison, a returning veteran who discovers his wife (Doris Dowling) has been unfaithful and wants a divorce. She turns up dead shortly thereafter, and Johnny is suspect number one. It will take all his ingenuity, help from buddies William Bendix and Hugh Beaumont, and the estranged wife of the Dahlia's owner (Lake) to clear his name. With an original screenplay written by the great Raymond Chandler, this taut thriller never disappoints. This very desirable one sheet has pinholes with a few enlarged ones at the top, a small chip and tear in the top border, pinpoint cross fold separations, and a few small fold separations at the edges. There is a smudge under the title, a minor chip at the left edge, a small scratch at the top of the image and one in the title. The color images of a smoking Ladd, Lake and co-stars make for an unforgettable, unrestored poster you do not want to miss. Fine+.
