    Description

    Bitter Rice (Lux Film, 1948). Italian 2 - Fogli (38" X 54") Averardo Ciriello Artwork.
    Produced by Dino De Laurentiis and directed by Giuseppe De Santis, this earthy tale of women field workers in Post-War Italy is one of the great landmark films of the neo-realist movement, and earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Story. Silvana Mangano stars as a tempestuous rice worker who is loved by a good man, played by Raf Vallone, and by small-time criminal (Vittorio Gassman). She ultimately chooses the wrong man, which leads to tragedy for herself and the other women of the story, including Gassman's long suffering girlfriend, played by Doris Dowling. It's Heritage's first time to offer this incredible country of origin poster, featuring expressive artwork by the great Averardo Ciriello. There has been touchup to the folds to address small chips and tears, and to pinholes in the borders and background. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
