The Long Wait

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists / Parklane Productions, 1954. Original one sheet poster for the 1954 film noir. One of the best psychological B-noirs of the 1950s, beautifully photographed by Franz Planer and tightly directed, with a plot strain that is kin to "Somewhere in the Night" (1946) and "Impact" (1949): a newly-minted amnesiac struggling to piece together just exactly how much trouble he's in. In this case, he finds out pretty quickly that he's a murder suspect—the problem is that he doesn't know whether or not he's guilty. A striking illustrated design, bold and immediate.

27 x 41 inches, linen-backed. Near Fine.
