Original RKO Three Sheet Poster for the Robert Stevenson film-noir crime drama, THE LAS VEGAS STORY (1952) starring Jane Russell, Victor Mature, and Vincent Price. This romantic-triangle love story is about a former cafe singer Linda (Russell) who marries a New York investment broker Lloyd (Price). When the two stop in Las Vegas at Linda's former venue, The Last Chance Club, Lloyd accumulates a huge gambling debt and is later accused of stealing his wife's $50,000 necklace to pawn and get an insurance settlement as well. The local police investigator Dave (Mature), who some years earlier had an affair with Linda before he was sent overseas, tries to sort out the truth about what really happened. When Linda is kidnapped, Dave goes crazy and chases the two across the desert in a helicopter. By the end of the picture, Lloyd turns out to be wanted for embezzlement charges back in New York, which allows Linda to divorce him, take back her old singing job in Vegas, and revive her old relationship with Dave. Besides the excellent performance by Jane Russell, the other stand-out performance of the film are the three songs written by Hoagy Carmichael "The Monkey Song" performed by Carmichael, "I Get Along Without You Very Well" performed by Russell, and "My Resistance is Low" performed by both of them. The poster is unbacked in very fine plus condition. No damage to the image area at all and vivid color. The border area of the top panel has a small chip. Three sheets are printed on two panels which must be joined to display the full poster. RKO posters from this period are some of the best film posters of the 1950s. Three sheets may be linen backed.
