    Description

    Giant (Warner Brothers, 1956). Insert (14" X 36").
    Set among the West Texas cattle ranches and oil fields, this sprawling epic is mostly remembered as the last film of iconic actor James Dean. In fact, Dean did not live long enough to see the film's premiere, as he was killed in a tragic auto accident shortly after filming wrapped. As Jett Rink, Dean is a ranch hand who strikes it rich when a well on his small plot of land comes in big, much to the chagrin of old-money couple Bick and Leslie Benedict (Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor). An American classic, the film was nominated for ten Oscars and won for Best Director (George Stevens).The insert is in highly presentable condition, showing only pinholes in the corners, edge discoloration, a small stain in the top border, and a tear in the left border. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
