Original Argentine 29 inch x 43 inch Poster
Original Argentine 29 inch x 43 inch Poster for the 1948 Marc Allegret Historical Drama BLANCHE FURY, based on the novel by Joseph Shearing and starring Valerie Hobson, Stewart Granger, Michael Gough, Walter Fitzgerald, Susanne Gibbs, Maurice Denham, Allan Jeayes, Edward Lexy, Amy Veness, Arthur Wontner and George Woodbridge.
With its labyrinthine plot, wanton cruelty and sweeping dramatic turns, Blanche Fury is a prime example of the Gothic melodrama at which Rank Studios excelled in the 1940s. But unlike many of those films, this one is unusual for being shot in Technicolor, and Swiss-born director Marc Allégret adds an eerie, unsettling atmosphere to the macabre proceedings.
The poster art is by Osvaldo Venturi. (1900 – 1989).
Osvaldo Venturi studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts where he graduated in 1923. In the period between 1940 and 1950 he became the most prolific Argentine poster designer particularly at the time when Guaranteed Pictures were churning out a huge number of film revivals.
The poster is in very condition and has been conservation paper-backed. There is a small tear in the bottom right corner.
