BOGART, COWAN, ASTOR | THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) Photo$300.00
[Los Angeles: Warner Brothers, 1941]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. There is overall creasing and scratches, a paper clip impression at the top left side going into the Spade and Archer window lettering, small repaired tear at top margin and at the bottom left margin and a significant crease down the lower half of the right side of the photo, very good-.
Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) and his partner Miles Archer (Jerome Cowan) meet the story’s femme fatale Brigid O’Shaughnessy (Mary Astor) in an early scene from the film. This is a well utilized photo, likely used for many publishing projects since the 1941 printing.
