Woman on Pier 13, The (1949)
27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]
POSTER CONDITION & GRADING
Very Good, linen backed. Prior to linen backing and restoration the poster was in generally good to very good condition, with original foldlines and minor paper loss in the top left and right green area by the corners of the top border. Slight stains and scuffs in the white border area and in the main title credit white area. Following linen backing, minor restoration was carried out to fold lines and to address these relatively minor flaws. The vibrant colours of this great example of RKO poster art now look great and the poster displays really well.
POSTER TAGLINE & DESCRIPTION
"High voltage melodrama!" This film premiered in the U.S. in late 1949 as "I Married a Communist", but was given a general release in 1950 as "The Woman on Pier 13". Superb femme fatale artwork and bold colours distinguish this poster for a notorious anti-communist film noir. A fine example of RKO's superior poster art.
