    Description

    On the Waterfront (Columbia, 1954). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    "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. This highly desirable one sheet has pinholes in the borders, fold wear with crossfold separation, and a censor stamp in the top right, but is extremely attractive and displayable, a true treasure for any film fan. Very Fine- on Linen.
