    Description

    The Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Based on the best-selling mystery novel by Dashiell Hammett, this film marked a turning point in the career of star Humphrey Bogart. Although Bogie had attained fame in The Petrified Forest (1936) several years earlier, and continued his rise to stardom through such pictures as San Quentin (1937), Angels with Dirty Faces (1939), and Dark Victory (1939), it was this picture that solidified his place as one of the greatest actors of the twentieth century. The story of private detective Sam Spade (Bogart) who, following the murder of his partner, finds himself enmeshed in the search for a priceless relic, this is one of the finest private eye films ever made, with Bogart's portrayal of Spade an iconic performance. Consequently, paper from this picture is extremely desirable, commanding strong prices whenever an example comes to market. This lovely one sheet had a tear in the top left corner, small chips in the bottom right corner, and minor chips and tearing in the borders. After expert professional restoration, this poster looks as good as new, perfect for displaying and admiring for years to come. Very Fine on Linen.
