    Description

    The Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1941). Window Card (14" X 22").
    This is one we've been waiting a long time to see! It is a completely unrestored and magnificent condition window card to perhaps the greatest film noir classic of all time, The Maltese Falcon! We sold another copy of the card in 2007 for over $15,500, and though very nice, it had been restored. This copy, with brilliant colors and only minor foxing around the perimeter, is perhaps one of the only copies to have never been used nor restored. It is known amongst the followers of this film and poster collectors that only the window card and the six sheet picture Humphrey Bogart as the true Sam Spade as he appears in the film. The other format posters used a photo of Bogart as "Mad Dog" Roy Earle from his previous starring role in High Sierra. The lovely Mary Astor as the femme fatale Brigid O'Shaughnessy is pictured with Bogie, in her co-starring role. Don't miss this opportunity to get this very rare poster in top condition! Very Fine+.
