Italian Locandina (14x28) Re-release of 1962 Linen Backed Fine Condition

Original Italian locandina poster (14x28) for the Michael Curtiz romantic classic, CASABLANCA (1942) starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains. This title has become America's most popular and beloved film of all time not only because of an inspired script, but also superlative performances by all, a wonderful score by Max Steiner, and faultless direction by Director Curtiz. This turbulent love story with harrowing intrigue opened on Thanksgiving Day in 1942 at the Hollywood Theater in New York three weeks after the Allies landed at Casablanca. The film catapulted the beautiful Swedish actress Bergman into superstar status. The film also advanced Bogart from his former gangster roles to the first of many hard-boiled romantic leads. Bergman had never worked with Bogart before this film and never would again. The movie received eight Academy Award nominations including Best Actor for Bogart, and Best Supporting Actor for Rains. The film won Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Director. This Italian poster dates from 1962 and features somewhat modernist art by Silvano "Nano" Campeggi. The poster was used in a cinema in Italy and showed some very modest signs of general wear. We have had the poster restored and mounted to linen. The result is lovely. It is clear that posters for CASABLANCA have increased dramatically in value over the last 10 years or so, yielding some very brisk prices at auction. While there are posters for CASABLANCA from many countries, none exceed the beauty of the Italian posters. We guarantee this Italian reissue from 1962 to be vintage, authentic, original. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
