Description

    This Gun for Hire (Paramount, 1942). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Alan Ladd is a double-crossed hired gun in this fantastic film noir, that would launch the actor into stardom. Though fourth billed, Paramount was well aware of Ladd's potential, and prominently featured him on posters for the film. Blonde beauty Veronica Lake also stars in the gritty crime thriller, and can be seen with Ladd on this fantastic piece. Prior to restoration, the poster had two tears in the imprint area, a tear in the right border, and a bend in the lower right corner. The imprint area and borders have been airbrushed. Touch-up work has been done in the title and Lake's hair. Fine/Very Fine.
