Original Warner Brothers Insert Poster (14x36). Folded. Very Fine. AUTOGRAPHED in ballpoint by LAUREN BACALL.

Original Warner Brothers Insert Poster (14x36) for the John Huston film noir masterpiece, KEY LARGO (1948) starring Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lauren Bacall, and Claire Trevor. While mostly remembered, and rather inaccurately, as another in the on-screen romances between Bogart and Bacall, this story of expatriate gangsters led by mob boss Johnny Rocco (Robinson) commandeering a sleepy tropical hotel in the middle of a hurricane turned out to be one of the best movies of the 1940's. Robinson is certainly one of the best film villains, and his portrayal of Rocco is based on the real life story of gangster Lucky Luciano who had been deported some years before. Claire Trevor won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her unforgettable role as Rocco's alcoholic moll with a heart of gold. This poster is signed in pen by the incomparable Lauren Bacall. This insert poster was originally folded and is in very fine condition. We know of no other poster on this important film of Lauren Bacall's career that bears her signature.
