Lady in the Lake

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1947. Complete set of eight lobby cards for the 1947 film. Based on the Raymond Chandler's 1943 novel, his fourth book and the fourth Philip Marlowe adventure.

An unusual and ambitious film noir, and Montgomery's final film for MGM. In a concept that originated with Montgomery, who directed, the entire film is shot from Marlowe's perspective, with the protagonist only ever visible in reflections and during a few scenes when he addresses the audience directly.

14 x 11 inches. Very Good plus. Faint distribution company blindstamp to lower corner, with light toning to the edges overall, a few with short closed tears repaired with tape to the verso. Otherwise, a bright and striking set.
