    Description

    The Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, R-1962). Post-War Release French Grande (47" X 63"). An incredibly striking image of Humphrey Bogart as private detective Sam Spade dominates this wonderful French poster. Released just after the end of World War II, this was the first time French audiences could enjoy this seminal film noir classic. Posters for this film are some of the most sought after in the entire hobby, and this striking French grande, designed by Bonneaud, is exceptionally scarce. There is fold wear with crossfold separations, light wrinkling on the borders, and a faint stamp on the bottom left. Note: This poster was mis-described as being first post war release. It is the 1962 re-release for the North African region. Very Fine on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
