Cornered

Hollywood: RKO Radio Pictures, 1945. Original one sheet poster for the 1945 film noir.

An overlooked gem from Dick Powell's second life as a noir icon, an anti-fascist espionage tale with a labyrinthine, Chandler-worthy plot, and an unforgettable standoff at the end. The undisguised, left-leaning overtones throughout contributed significantly to the blacklisting of both producer Adrian Scott and director Dmytryk.

27 x 41 inches. Near Fine, on archival linen.
