    Description

    On the Waterfront (Columbia, 1954). Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 54.25").
    Shining the spotlight on mob violence and corruption among longshoremen in the 1950s, On the Waterfront stars Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy, a has-been prizefighter in his mid-twenties working the docks for the local gang boss, Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb). Thanks to its intensity and rich story, the picture won Oscars for Best Picture, Actor (Brando), Supporting Actress (Eva Marie Saint), Director (Elia Kazan) and Screenplay (Budd Schulberg). This exceptional Italian 2 foglio was created by Anselmo Ballester, who also provided the artwork for the equally moving 4 foglio. The piece features the angst ridden Brando and Eva Marie Saint, the red-hot iron fist of mob boss Johnny, and the raging conflict between dock workers and racketeers. A large chip in the top cross fold has been touched up, and the poster now boasts a display-ready appearance. Fine+ on Linen.
