    Description

    Picnic (Columbia, 1956). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 77.75").
    A 1950s box office hit, Picnic was adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning William Inge play. William Holden is a wayward soul who drifts into a small Kansas town during the Labor Day celebration. He's hoping to reap the kindness of an old college buddy (Cliff Robertson), but instead steals his "pal's" sweetheart, Kim Novak. A devastatingly beautiful Novak dominates this Italian piece, which is being offered for the first time ever at Heritage. The poster shows mild edge and fold wear, fold separations, small tears, and minor chips. There is also faint staining and toning in the borders and folds. The verso has a few pieces of archival tape bracing a fold separation. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
