An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Moontide, the 1942 Fritz Lang & Archie Mayo romantic film noir melodrama ("Different! Jean Gabin is not only an altogether new type, girls! He's got a different technique of love making. Don't ask! See it - in Moontide..."; "Thrill to discovering a new star!"; based on the novel by Willard Robertson; a strange movie about a waterfront worker who is afraid he may have killed a man when he was drunk, and he hides out on a barge with his best friend, but he meets a prostitute who tries to kill herself, and he lets her live there as well, and the friend is jealous and afraid that she will leave him the odd man out, and he tries to get rid of her) starring Jean Gabin ("His first American picture!"), Ida Lupino, Thomas Mitchell, Claude Rains, Jerome Cowan, and Helene Reynolds. Note that legendary director Fritz Lang had left Germany to escape Hitler in the early 1930s, and when he began making American movies, what he made was incredibly dark. The credited director on this movie is Archie Mayo, but it is known that Lang directed portions of it, which makes sense, because this movie is extremely downbeat!
