This is an original, linen-backed, one-sheet movie poster from 1947 for Dark Passage starring Humphrey Bogart,Lauren Bacall,Bruce Bennett,Agnes Moorehead, Tom D'Andrea, Clifton Young, andDouglas Kennedy. Delmer Daves directed the classic film noir.
The poster measures 27" x 41" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good to very good condition prior to restoration with pinholes from theatrical display and a few small tears on the edges from handling. It was folded at the time of printing and an extra vertical and horizontal fold from being refolded after display. There were some creases and separations on the cross-folds. The fold lines are much less noticeable after restoration. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1947 to promote the initial, theatrical release of Dark Passage, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
