    Description

    Rebel Without a Cause (Warner Brothers, R-1968). Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
    Few poster artists have more ardent collectors than Italy's Luigi Martinati. He created the original 1956 Rebel Without a Cause poster, and has produced a completely different work for the 1968 re-release of the film. With the twelve years between releases, Martinati seems to have gained clarity on the true nature of the film. His original pose was etched in a night shaded romantic forlorn embrace by the two stars, James Dean and Natalie Wood, with a shadowy insouciant, smirking Dean in the background. For this poster, Martinati has chosen the climactic final scene of the film featuring a more mature Wood and Dean decidedly on their guard, with Sal Mineo to the right of them about to meet his tragic end. This is a truly rare opportunity to study a top artist's creative progression through the years with the same film. Linenbacking has addressed some fold wear with small paper loss, and border pinholes. Very Fine- on Linen.
