    Description

    The Postman Always Rings Twice (MGM, 1947). Italian 4 - Fogli (56" X 78"). Ercole Brini Artwork.
    A drifter (John Garfield) and a devastatingly attractive woman (Lana Turner) plot to bump off her husband (Cecil Kellaway) for his insurance money. Arrested after committing the murder, they beat the rap in court, but soon find they must still pay the price for their crime. Based on the novel by James M. Cain, the screenplay for this film required a number of drafts over many years to enable it to conform with the Hays Code restrictions. Artist Ercole Brini's expressive image looks wonderful after professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the borders and image area, small crossfold and border chips, some chipping along the right vertical fold in the lower panel, and has applied touchup to the folds. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
