Original RKO Portrait Lobby Card (11x14). Near Mint.

Original RKO Portrait Lobby Card (11x14) for the Allan Dwan film noir, SLIGHTLY SCARLET (1950) starring John Payne, Rhonda Fleming, Arlene Dahl, and Kent Taylor. The film was based on a novel by James M. Cain, who already had three of his books adapted for the screen in the 1940s: DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944), MILDRED PIERCE (1945), and THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE (1946). This story has a very convoluted plot about scheming and political intrigue in California. Payne reprises his small-time gangster role, and his twin temptations are Fleming (the mayor's girl Friday) and Dahl (a man-devouring kleptomaniac). Legendary noir cinematographer John Alton works in color here and introduces surreal bursts of lime green, burnt orange, and deep orchid into his otherwise bleak and dark trapezoids. This original portrait lobby card is in near mint condition. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this wonderful film noir lobby card is a vintage, authentic U.S. lobby card for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
