The Big Heat
Based upon a serial in the Saturday Evening Post by William P. McGivern, 1953’s classic Film Noir starred Glenn Ford, Gloria Grahame and Lee Marvin.
Dave Bannion (Ford), is the cop determined to uncover the gang (headed Vince Stone, played by Lee Marvin) who are suspected of having infiltrated the police force.
Directed by Fritz Lang, the film was a critical success on its opening and remains one of the best films in the Noir canon. This is the original US One Sheet poster, with its powerful and evocative imagery.
This poster is in very good condition with no major flaws, but was linen-backed in the 'European style' without the ink loss to the fold-lines being addressed.
