Thieves Like Us

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1974. Lobby card from the 1974 film, an early and unusual entry in the American neo-noir canon. Based on the 1937 novel, a hard boiled classic by proletarian writer Edward Anderson.

Robert Altman made almost no mistakes in the 1970s, and this was one of the many high spots. The director, along with novelist-screenwriter Calder Willingham, adapted a forgotten but seminal work from the dust bowl era and brought it to life with Carradine and Duvall, two actors who were staples of his highly successful stable of actors during the New Hollywood era.

11 x 14 inches. Near Fine, with a couple of shallow corner creases and some light rubbing.

Hanna 69. Spicer, p. 436.
