We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for BLUE DAHLIA, THE (1946) by Marshall, George (director).

Description:

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, William Bendix, Howard Da Silva, dir: George Marshall; Paramount. One of the finest classic film noir titles and written by the master of the genre, Raymond Chandler. The story involved a war vet who returns home to see his wife with another man. She is murdered and he is the prime suspect. The Blue Dahlia is a nightclub where much of the action takes place. Chandler initially had the returning vet (Bendix) as the murderer, but the patriotic atmosphere of the time would not permit a war vet to be seen in that light, so he had to rewrite the story and character. William Bendix (as Buzz) points a gun at Alan Ladd (as Johnny Morrison) in a room full of male characters. Crease at top left corner. Two pin holes near top right corner at top of image background. A number "4" is written next to the copyright information. Some brown tape on the back. VERY GOOD. Bookseller Inventory #
