Description

    The Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41"). John Huston, a writer with Warner Brothers, made his directorial debut with this film, and hoped to cast George Raft in the lead as Sam Spade. When Raft turned the role down it went to Humphrey Bogart, a second string actor who had been playing villains and gangsters in many "B" films. The rest is history. The story, written by Dashiell Hammett, is the most famous detective novel, and spawned what may be the greatest American detective film. This 1941 version remains the perfect film more than 65 years after it was made. It set the standards for every film noir made thereafter. This great poster has a repaired area approximately 3.5" by 6" in the lower border, affecting the right corner, and extending into the "os" of Bros. and the copyright info. There is another repaired area 3" by 1" in the right lower vertical border. There is general fold wear and a pencil line that crosses the "c" and "o" of Falcon within the title. The poster is not linen backed. Fine-.
