    Description

    Giant (Warner Brothers, 1956) Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"), Color Stills (4)(8" X 10"), B&W Stills (3)(8" X 10").This lot consists of the lobby card set, four color stills and three b&w stills. George Steven's classic western cast Rock Hudson and James Dean as two feuding Texans, rivals over oil and a beautiful woman portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor. The film, based on Edna Ferber's novel, was loosely based on a number of legendary Texas families, most prominently, the King family and their massive ranch. The film was nominated for several Oscars and in fact, should have won the Oscar for Best Picture. These lobby cards capture some of the film's best moments, including the iconic image of James Dean sitting in the back seat of his car with the Benedict house in the background. The set is in very fine condition overall, however, the #2 card (Dean in the car) has a major stain in the lower left corner and right corner, as well as pin-holes in the corners. One of the color stills has the protective gloss separating from the still. Fine/Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
