I've never seen this one either...

Weird when I think about it, considering how similar our tastes tend to be...

Are you sayin you don't like this one or? I don't have this one. It's another HUGE french poster, so even if I had the ten grand or so, I wouldn't have anywhere to put it. Having said that, I wish I could find a way to buy it. Insane I know.

Y'know, I just realized you meant the film. I need to lay off the margaritas dude. It's soo f-in hot..

You know, come to think of it, I have seen this one since I was a kid. Weird, considering how iconic it is. I'm throwing it on the Netflix queue.

Great-looking poster!

It looks like Bacall snapped one off and Bogey's taking a big sniff. She's trying to seem oblivious because there's no dog to blame it on.

johnny- I think you'll enjoy it a great deal being a fan of movies from that era and a Bogie fan in general. The posters really great isn't it? I'm really partial to French posters from this time period. I have one for In a Lonely Place(with Bogie) by Rene Peron that I'm crazy about. I'll post pics when I get it framed.

skinny- One from the peanut gallery eh? Thanks, now I'll never look at it quite the same again. Thanks for the comment though! (jerk) Just kidding, y'know I love ya.

blanco- This is my fav poster image for the movie in large part because of the Deco design..

Joe Brody? On that point, you'll have to get confirmation from a Chandler biographer.(smart-ass) :)
