The Big Steal
Great RKO noir thriller cum romance, directed by a young Don Siegel and coupling Jane Greer with Howard Hughes’ favourite actor, Robert Mitchum. Ably supported by the ever dependable William Bendix.
This is an original US Title Lobby Card from the set of 8 produced for the movie’s first release (1949). As ever with RKO advertising material of the time, it features nice imagery of the three leads, and a good feel of what was in store for the movie goers looking at the Lobby Cards on display in the lobby as they queued to enter the theatre.
Bright original condition card. A few signs of age and wear, mainly several sets of tiny pinholes (most noticeable in Mitchum's hair and some small smudges.
