    The Glass Key (Paramount, 1942). One Sheet (27.25" X 40.75").
    Ever popular with collectors, this "key motif" one sheet ranks as one of the very best in the film noir genre. Veronica Lake peeks out from behind her trademark blond locks as drama unfolds all around, her co-stars locked in heated scuffles. Based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett, the picture also features Alan Ladd and Brian Donlevy. Even more, William Bendix gives a scene-stealing performance as a brutal henchman. Life-like portraits of the stars executed in brilliant color and an action-filled photo montage make this poster a head-turning "must-have!" Restoration includes minimal touchup to the folds (right center horizontal/border), a tiny chip in the upper left border, and a tiny chip in the center crossfold. There is faint bleed through in the right border from a stamp on the verso, and writing in pen on the left side of the verso that does not bleed through. The poster now displays exceedingly well. Very Fine+ on Linen.
