Description

    The Killing (United Artists, 1956). British Quad (29.5" X 38.5").
    This film, based on the novel Clean Break by Lionel White, was director Stanley Kubrick's first major film effort and he directed this film at the age of 28. Creating a well made, tightly-knit tale of a racetrack heist, Sterling Hayden stars as the mastermind who recruits small-time hoods who quickly get in over their heads when their scheme goes awry. This quad is a first time offer for Heritage and is a completely different image than the US campaign, this showing the cast of characters. Prior to being mounted on a light European linen, the poster had pinholes and light fold wear. The poster has no touchup work and still shows some signs of slight soiling. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
