Description

    This Gun for Hire (Paramount, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Frank Tuttle directs the action in this excellent film noir featuring the unforgettable pairing of Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd. Lake stars as a nightclub singer who is working undercover for the government to track down a corrupt industrialist (Tully Marshall) who's been working for America's enemies. She becomes entangled with double-crossed hitman Ladd, who must ultimately choose between his criminal instincts and his desire to help his new, and only, friend Lake. A seminal and intelligent film, it is based on a Graham Greene story and is as powerful today as when it was first released during WWII. A pinnacle piece for any top poster collection, this iconic sheet is in extremely nice condition. It shows only staple holes in the corners, minor tears at the left and top edges and a crossfold separation. The poster has been mounted on linen, but no other restoration has been done. The linen is trimmed to the edges of the poster. These minor issues do not distract from this dramatic images of these legendary stars. Very Fine- on Linen.
