Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, Circa 1944. Collection of five original concept art sketches for advertisements for the 1944 film. Executed graphite pencil, black ink, and white paint, four on onion skin and one on white paper stock.
Ostensibly based on the play by Edward Locke, but bearing little resemblance in plot, the film follows a physician who becomes obsessed with a young singer whose voice reminds him of his late wife's, whom he murdered because of a similar obsession. Nominated for a Academy Award.
Sized variously between 6 x 6.25 and 8.25 x 9.25 inches (15 x 16 and 21 x 23 cm). Very Good plus or better.
