Where Film Noir Lives...Too!
The Postman Always Rings Twice (MGM, 1946).Australian One Sheet (27" X 40"). Here's another great format for this title, the Australian one sheet. The wonderful stone litho graphics of this one sheet closely resemble that of its American counterpart, which many consider to be the most important graphics of the entire film noir genre. Fine.
The Postman Always Rings Twice (MGM, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Lana Turner heats up the screen in her most acclaimed role as Cora, the bored wife who turns to a drifter (John Garfield) to escape her drab, dull existence. Though the film rights were first purchased in 1934, it was more than a decade before a studio was able to sufficiently tone down James M. Cain's steamy best-seller and get it past the censors.
One of the "toning down" ideas employed by director Tay Garnett was dressing Turner in virginal white, in an effort to turn down the heat. The on-screen effect was totally the opposite. This one sheet had pinholes in the field, two small tears on the lower right and one on the upper right above the fold, fold wear with chipping and small tears, and crossfold separation, but expert restoration has addressed these items and the result is a poster that displays very well. Fine+ on Linen.
