DARK PASSAGE (1947) Photo | Lauren Bacall attends to Humphrey Bogart


New York: Warner Brothers Pictures, [1947] Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo. Light marginal creasing, near fine.

Wrongly imprisoned for murdering his wife, Vincent Parry (Humphrey Bogart) escapes prison to seek revenge. He goes through plastic surgery to change his appearance and, in a unique cinematic invention, the entire first part of the film is viewed through his eyes. Only once he is bandaged do we see him from the audience perspective.

In still 675-51 we see the friendly artist Irene Jansen (Lauren Bacall) attending to him. Theatre advertising ink stamp is on the verso. Distribution imprint blindstamp is at bottom right corner.
