Humphrey Bogart and Michele Morgan Signed Photo Passage to Marseille

31 Jul

Vintage glossy 10 x 8 Warner Bros.–First National promotional photo for Passage to Marseille, showing Bogart and Michele Morgan in a convertible, signed in purple fountain pen, “Humphrey Bogart,” and signed and inscribed in purple fountain pen, “To Harold, best wishes, Michele Morgan.” In very good to fine condition, with light scattered creases and surface marks, mild edge wear with a few trivial tears, and some light rubbing to finish. Passage to Marseille, a 1944 war film directed by Michael Curtiz, reunited much of the cast of Casablanca, including Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Helmut Dantine. Michele Morgan had been the original choice for the Casablanca female lead, but the role fell to Ingrid Bergman due to contractual matters. Nevertheless, she found herself starring opposite Bogart in Passage to Marseille two years later. An immensely desirable photo, enhanced by this especially interesting Hollywood association. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
