Vintage Hollywood Posters
A Casablanca promotional poster, displayed at the 1942 Premiere
Gouache, photography, and cut-out wood on masonite, created for the film's 1942 New York City premiere. This standee features Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Berman as well as a small photograph of Sydney Greenstreet at the upper right corner. The final version of the printed poster is quite different from this example, however, depicting a torn sheet of newspaper with "Casablanca" as the headline, and showing smaller images of Bogey and Bergman.
Condition overall good, but with one image lacking and perforations at the corners and in the upper margin.
Provenance: Sotheby's Collector's Carousel, December 16, 1988.
