Warner Brothers Original Italian 39x55 Poster Folded Fine Plus Condition Art by Ballester

Original Italian Two Foglio Poster (39x55) for the Elia Kazan iconic crime drama, ON THE WATERFRONT (1954) starring Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, and Eva Marie Saint. Art by Anselmo Ballester. This powerful drama tells the story of ex-prize fighter Terry (Brando), who becomes a longshoreman and struggles to stand up to corrupt union bosses. This is certainly one of the great American films concerning the horrors of corruption and injustice and the willingness of one brave man to stand up to evil power. Nominated for twelve Academy Awards, the film won eight Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor to Brando, Best Supporting Actress to Saint, Best Screenplay to Budd Schulberg, and Best Director to Kazan. The film also featured a wonderful score by Leonard Bernstein. This Italian 39x55 was used in an Italian cinema, and shows signs of general use. There are cracks along the fold lines and general weakness at the folds, which is largely characteristic of Italian posters that are 75 years old! Colors are great, however. We recommend linen-backing this for this poster. Ask us about poster conservation services.
