Casablanca Original Movie Poster Lobby Card Humphrey Bogart 1942


Casablanca, 1942
Original Vintage Movie Poster Lobby Card
Starring Humphrey Bogart

2017 is the 75th Anniversary of Casablanca 

It is what many film historians have voted the greatest movie of all time.   

Wow!  I can't tell you how excited we are for only the 2nd time in 37 years of collecting  to have acquired one of the most scarce and highly sought after movie memorabilia treasures, an Original 1942 “Casablanca” lobby card.  It is simply stunning. A most memorable scene with Bogie and Peter Lorre.   

* NOTE:   
Time has not diluted the demand for original artifacts for this masterpiece classic film  .   This past July an Italian 1946 one sheet sold for $478,000.  And the original 1942 Lobby Cards have skyrocketed in value.   A Title Lobby Card sold in July 2016  for $15,600..    We haven’t had an original lobby card in several  years.    So, we are excited to have just acquired this one .

Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), owner of Rick's Cafe, the hottest nightspot in Casablanca, has his world turned upside down when his old flame Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) comes walking through his door with her husband, notorious resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). A stirring movie, Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet, and Conrad Veidt are also featured in the all-star cast.

Condition:  Picturing Lorre and Bogart, this card shows dust shadows at the edges, This card had minor restoration to address small bottom border tear and a light  crease in Peter Lorre's jacket, and pinholes in the borders with another above the title. There is light age related toning on border edges which we left as it offers an attractive vintage added layer of authenticity.   And I personally love the added touch of authenticity with all its 75 years of theater used history.. and did not want to take that away with restoration.  
It now looks great!

It is in quite nice condition for its 75 years.   And such a Rarity of a find, you never know when and IF another will surface within the next decade!
