    Description

    Giant (Warner Brothers, 1956). Standee (20" x 70"). Without a doubt, this has to be one of the rarest of all posters made for this classic George Stevens picture. James Dean as the wildcatter, Jett Rink, appears on this original standee. This was Dean's last film before his life was tragically cut short; he was posthumously nominated for Best Actor by the Academy. This is a portion of the original, full-size standee, as there were full-size die-cut images of Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor created as well. There is some slight wear to the edges, a few scuffs within the image and a bit of chipping in the color around the base, but otherwise, this standee is in incredible condition and sports a "James Dean" printed signature. This may be your only chance to acquire this incredible poster of one of the screen's true icons. Very Fine-.

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