(Warner Bros., 1942) An original hand-painted title background for Desperate Journey. This artwork appears behind the opening credit sequence of the Raoul Walsh-directed wartime thriller starring Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan, illustrating the protagonists’ flight from their Nazi captors. The background has been framed with an acetate overlay of the film’s title art, recreating the main title credit as seen on screen. Title backgrounds are among the rarest of all vintage production artifacts, as in many cases only a single background was created for an entire credit sequence. The artwork has an image size of 18.5”x26” within its 23.5”x35” frame. The piece is in very good condition.
