Description

    On the Waterfront (Columbia, 1954). French Grande (45.25" X 62") Style B.
    This award winning 1954 film about mob violence and corruption among longshoremen has become a standard of its kind. Based on a series of articles written in the New York Sun by Malcolm Johnson, it tells the story of Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando), who is a washed-up ex-prizefighter in his mid-twenties working on the docks for the local gang boss, Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb). The film was ranked the 8th greatest American film of all time by the AFI. Both of the French Grande styles are absolutely stunning, and extremely rare. For only the second time, Heritage presents this Style B Grande with the brooding Brando, perfectly depicted by artist Guy Arnstam. Touchup has the piece in top display condition, addressing fold wear and randomly placed pinholes. Faint scratches under "Sur" and creases in the left background are barely perceptible. Very Fine- on Linen.
