    Description

    Human Desire (Columbia, 1955). Italian 4 - Fogli (55.25" X 77.75") Alfredo Capitani Artwork.
    Fritz Lang directs this remake of Jean Renoir's 1938 La bete Humaine, a film based on the novel by Emile Zola. This sordid, often bleak melodrama tells the story of a married woman (Gloria Grahame) who's trying to get rid of her obsessively jealous husband (Broderick Crawford) with the aid of a train engineer (Glenn Ford). Artist Alfredo Capitani brings us a suspenseful illustration with all three main characters making an appearance in eye catching colors. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the borders and interior, small chips and tears in the borders and folds, and applied touchup to the folds. There is a section of paper lost from the top border through Glenn Ford's credit. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $300 - $600.
