    Description

    The Man with the Golden Arm by Saul Bass (Art Krebs Screen Studio, 1984). Silk Screen Poster (25" X 35").
    When Saul Bass was asked to do the design for this film, he wanted to create an instantly recognizable solitary motif that would impart the essence of the film immediately. He drew a jagged, cut-out arm, such as that of Frank Sinatra's character, writhing in the throes of heroin addiction withdrawal. Of course the studio, likely under pressure from the actor's agents, added the actor's faces to the final form of the poster, completely diluting the power of the original piece. He commissioned the Art Krebs Studio to produce a small number of prints of his original design for gifts to friends, museums, and exhibitions throughout the world. A necessary collectible for any fan of Bass' work, this fantastic piece of silk screen printing has mild edge wear, minor tears, slight creases, and some surface scuffs in the interior. Rolled, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
