    Description

    Giant (Warner Brothers, 1956). Poster (40" X 60") Style Z.
    Edna Ferber's wildly popular, epic saga of the Benedict family and their vast Reata ranch is brought to the big screen in larger than life fashion by legendary director George Stevens, who so memorably contrasts the big moments with many touching personal scenes. Texas millionaire cattle rancher Bick Benedict (Rock Hudson) marries the spirited Virginia socialite, Leslie (Elizabeth Taylor). The couple's turbulent relationship is complicated by wildcatter Jett Rink, played in sublime fashion by James Dean, in what would be his final role. Leslie questions the Texas way of life on the ranch, but, in the end, credits Bick with having developed some sensitivity and understanding concerning the social, family, and economic problems they encounter over the decades this story spans. This is a very rare 40" X 60" poster which Heritage has never offered before. It has slightly enlarged pinholes in the corners and image, a stain in the image and a scratch in the credits area. This striking, rare paper from the iconic Texas tale would be an outstanding piece for any fan. From the Diamond Run - Tom Fagan Collection. Rolled, Fine-.
