Lot 1104
A Paul Henreid jacket from Casablanca

Sold for US$ 9,450 inc. premium
A Paul Henreid jacket from Casablanca
Warner Bros., 1942. Light tweed suit coat with a chest pocket and two side pockets, bearing an interior green-lettered "Warner Bros. Pictures" label inscribed, "3-25-42," with a line on the label crossed out with black marker, with "W-B" handwritten in black marker above the label, and modern "TBS Wardrobe" stamp to inside sleeve. Paul Henreid did not want the role of Victor Laszlo, as he had just come off a wave of successful leading roles, particularly in Now Voyager (1942) with Bette Davis. He felt the less-important role of Victor was a step down. The Viennese actor finally agreed to appear in the picture provided he was given more screen time and co-star billing with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. The jacket is worn by Henreid at the end of the film at Rick's Cafe and then at the airport as he and Bergman say goodbye to Bogart and board the plane to freedom. Accompanied by a photo of Henreid wearing the coat.
