Keybook stills are much more rare to come across, especially ones from one of the all-time great movies and all-time great film noirs… Out of the Past! This image of Robert Mitchum as Jeff Bailey ranks up there as one of the best movie stills I’ve ever laid eyes on. Incredibly rare stills and finds like this are why I do this site. An absolute pleasure to preserve and share this treasure of cinema. I didn’t fully restore this still but did spend a good chunk of time restoring it to get it into this quality so it had the look and depth it did when it originally was printed (some surface scratches and blemishes are the only defects that remain).

Caption:
BMG-9 – HUNTED – Robert Mitchum
portrays a private detective who is hunted for a gangland doublecross in “Build My Gallows High,” RKO Radio’s hard-hitting melodrama which also stars Jane Greer.
