    Description

    The Petrified Forest (Warner Brothers, 1936). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In a telegram that launched a legend, Leslie Howard (who was set to re-enact his stage role in The Petrified Forest for the screen) told Jack Warner that if Humphrey Bogart wasn't given the part of the gangster Duke Mantee, then he wouldn't appear in the film as well. Warner wanted one of their other tough guys that were already established stars, Edward G. Robinson, Paul Muni or James Cagney for the role. Howard stood firm and Bogart was given the part. It was one of the greatest castings in cinema history and made Bogart an overnight sensation. A great image showcasing all of the film's stars, this card has had touchup applied to pinholes in the corners and one mild tear each in the left and right borders. There is museum tape on the verso. Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
