Big Sleep, The

Movie Poster Concept Artwork

Stock #68933

A preliminary poster design used in the development of the poster for the 1978 adaptation of The Big Sleep. Illustrated by Richard Amsel, the drawing shows Robert Mitchum and Candy Clark in the roles of Philip Marlowe and Camilla Sternwood. The pose was ultimately adjusted for the final poster, with Marlowe given a snubnose revolver to better fit the composition. The piece is executed in pencils and inks on tracing paper. Displaying only minor wear from use and display, with minor wrinkling to the paper, the piece remains in very good condition and is supplied with mountboard and a wood backing.
