OUT OF THE PAST (1947)
Vintage original 10 x 8″ (25 x 20 cm.) double weight glossy sepia-tinted silver gelatin print still photo USA. Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Fleming, Richard Webb, dir: Jacques Tourneur; RKO. Brilliant classic film noir. A tale of a private eye who attempts to escape his past, a past which will not leave him alone.
Several of the elements of archetypal film noir are present in this provocative publicity still, including the private eye wearing a trench coat and a provocative femme fatale in a romantic clinch set against a night backdrop. Really wonderful image. A linen photo, the original attached typed information blurb is on the verso and the original RKO stamp can be seen under the linen backing. There is a minor crease at the bottom right corner. NEAR FINE.
