Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket
Book Type: Lobby card
Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Tom Neal, Ann Savage, Claudia Drake, Edmund MacDonald, Tim Ryan, dir: Edgar G. Ulmer; PRC. One of the best-remembered titles in the film noir genre and one of the most effective in its use of shadow, light and black-and-white photography. The shoestring budget it was made on actually enhances the atmosphere. The story of a chance encounter when a hitchhiker accepts a ride to Los Angeles; the driver dies en route and the hitchhiker assumes the dead man's identity. A woman who knew the dead man then blackmails him. This image reveals the climactic moment when Al Roberts (Tom Neal) discovers that he has accidentally killed Vera (Ann Savage) with the telephone cord. There are two tiny pinholes at the top center blank white margin and slight smudging on the blank white borders. ABOUT FINE. Bookseller Inventory # 10470
