LADY IN THE LAKE (1947) – 2$1,000.00
Set of eight (8) vintage original 14 x 11″ (35 x 28 cm.) lobby cards, USA. Robert Montgomery, Audrey Totter, Lloyd Nolan, Leon Ames, Jayne Meadows, dir: Robert Montgomery; MGM. Strong graphics and layout highlight the film noir feel of this rare set of cards. Raymond Chandler’s character Phillp Marlowe is presented first person through the camera’s view, allowing the audience to solve the mystery along with him. This film was close in spirit to the novel and is one of the finest adaptations of a Chandler book.
This is an absolutely wonderful set showing key tense moments from this bizarre film. Of all the classic ’40s Phillip Marlowe films, this is one of the toughest titles to find, and this is certainly a very difficult set to find complete. Minor creasing to top left of title card as well as a tiny border tear and rub at the mid-left margin, a repaired tear at the bottom middle edge of card no. 2, mended tear at bottom left side of card no. 7, otherwise all are very clean and without pinholes. NEAR FINE.
