Original U.S. Six-Sheet in Theater-Used Average Condition Folded

Universal Pictures Original U.S. Six-Sheet Poster for the Michael Gordon directed neo-noir thriller PORTRAIT IN BLACK (1960). The film stars Lana Turner, Anthony Quinn, Sandra Dee, John Saxon, James Nolan, Virginia Grey, Lloyd Nolan, Ray Walston and Richard Basehart. Here is a six-sheet which we have not seen offered in the past, at least not at auction. Appropriately enough for a film with its title, the poster is a collage of monochrome photographs from the film, most of which are steamy in nature. Turner is a trophy wife caring for her ailing husband, played by Nolan. She falls for his doctor, and as you can imagine, this is almost never good. Of course, the doctor is Anthony Quinn, so that much testosterone in hard to resist. When the husband ends up dead, well, the police have to get involved. This had been a play on Broadway written by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts. It was the kind of thing that was tailor made for Universal's contract players. If you get a chance to see this movie, look for legend Anna May Wong in a small part. It is her last film. Six sheet posters are large-format posters (81x81 inches) printed on four separate panels. These panels are joined together to present as one poster. This poster has already been taped together some sixty years ago by the theater folks who ran the picture. The general condition overall is quite good, with one chip out of the top area. Rare in this format, to be sure. Perfect for linen-backing. Ask us about poster conservation services.
