    Description

    Bitter Rice (Lux Film, 1948). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55") 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, as well as 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. Featuring expressive artwork by the great Averardo Ciriello, this country of origin poster has had touchup to the folds, edge wear with small chips and tears, and some of the pinholes into the interior. Some of the pinholes are torn or enlarged.
