Humphrey Bogart in The Big Sleep (1946)
This portrait from our collection is from a crisp 4X5 chrome. It's one of our favorites. The colors are bright and vibrant and could have been taken yesterday. This was shot during the filming of "the Big Sleep" in 1946. He played detective Philip Marlowe in the first film of what would become an acclaimed series of detective films. Bogart's co star in the film was his wife Lauren Bacall. This shot was taken during a break in the shooting of the film..
