    Description

    On the Waterfront (Columbia, 1954). One Sheet (27" X 41.25").
    "I could have had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it." So says Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) in director Elia Kazan's epic tale about mob corruption and violence on the New York docks. Largely seen as an allegory about "naming names" during the horrifying McCarthy Era, this marvelous film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Actor (Brando), Best Director (Kazan), and Best Picture. A striking portrait of Brando fills the one sheet format, and this example displays nicely after professional touchup was applied to the folds, small chips in corners, and a larger chip in the top border with a tear extending from it down to the top of Brando's head. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
