    Description

    The Bicycle Thief (ENIC, 1948). Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
    Novelist Luigi Bartolini penned this touching and heartbreaking tale, brought deftly to the screen by acclaimed director Vittorio DeSica. The film is a poignant look at the hardships endured by Italians during the post-war years. DeSica created several neo-realist films (Shoeshine, Two Women, Miracle in Milan) that attempted to show ordinary people dealing with suffering in a manner that was true to life. Considered his masterpiece, this endearing picture deserves an equally brilliant poster, and this country-of-origin two foglio hits the mark, with artwork by Ercole Brini. The poster had fold wear, edge wear with tears, pinholes in the corners, a chip and tears in the upper left corner, and chips in the bottom section folds. Minimal touchup has been applied to these signs of wear, and the poster displays nicely. Fine+ on Linen.
