$750.00

[Hollywood]: 20th Century Fox, [1946]. Archive of twelve (12) photos: 4 vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) photos and 8 borderless 7 ¼ x 9 1/8″ (19 x 23 cm.) photos. Borderless photos are uncoded and have studio text affixed. Of the remaining photos, one is date-stamped on the back, one has studio text on back, and two have 20th Fox stamps, also on back. Just about fine.

Silver, Ward, Ursini, Porfirio, p.273: “Might well be a quintessential film noir… because it has a protagonist who meets so many noir criteria: an amnesiac, a war-wounded veteran and a private eye all rolled up into one character.”

Joseph Mankiewicz directed John Hodiak, Nancy Guild, Richard Conte, Lloyd Nolan, Sheldon Leonard, Charles Arnt, Whit Bissell and Fritz Kortner, a veteran of German expressionist film.

This set contains a haunting portrait of Kortner. Code numbers: 691/18, 38, 59, 140.
