    Description

    This Gun for Hire (Paramount, R-1945). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This 1945 re-release poster features fantastic art of Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd. When released in 1942, Paramount found themselves with a huge hit on their hands in what would be an early film noir classic. They teamed Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd in six more films and, to this day, they are known as the king and queen of noir. With this poster, they have billed Ladd first as he was not on the original posters. This one sheet had very minor chipping in the right edge and a small amount of paper loss along the lower left edge border. There was touch-up to the crossfolds. This poster is at least as scarce as the original, maybe more so, and has had professional conservation work. It now displays beautifully. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
