Descripción:

Color movie poster, 41 x 27 1/4 inches, multiple folds, mounted on paper and backed with linen. Originally folded edge tears and slight separations at folds now repaired. Light pencil line framing image. Good condition. The city of Chungking (Chongqing, formerly part of Sichuan province in Southwest China) was in the news in 1943 in relation to Szechwan Invasion, also known as the Chongqing Operation, "the Imperial Japanese Army's failed plan to destroy the Chongqing-based Chiang Kai-shek government during the Second Sino-Japanese War. It was to be a stepping stone for Japan's final control of the Chinese mainland." (wikipedia). Movie reviews make clear the tenuous connection between this movie and the title: 'The Rialto is currently taking its patrons on one of those wild, purposeless cinematic flights in "Night Plane From Chungking." Occasionally the ride becomes a trifle suspenseful, but for the most part one routine adventure follows another with dreadful methodicalness. For this is another in the growing list of Hollywood melodramatic exercises in which the war is dragged in simply to give an old story formula a semblance of freshness. In this case Paramount even stretched a point in labeling the film "Night Plane From Chungking," for it is by the merest of coincidences that the characters get aboard a transport plane on their way to the Indian frontier, and at that they are quickly shot down by a squadron of Japs." (New York Times May 31, 1943). It seems likely that the poster image with dramatic orange plane flying across the central image is more powerful than the movie was. At lower right is the directive (obviously not adhered to) "Property of National Screen Service Corp. Licensed for display in connection with the exhibition of this picture at your theatre. Must be returned immediately thereafter." A movie poster that demonstrates the tenuous connection between "art" and life. "Screen Play by Earl Feltan, Theodore Reeves and Lester Cole, Adaptation by Sidney Biddell. Based on a Story by Harry Hervey. Directed by Ralph Murphy. A Paramount Picture.".
