DescriptionRebel without a Cause (Warner Brothers, 1955). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
Despite lifting its iconic title from psychiatrist Robert M. Lidner's 1944 book Rebel Without a Cause: The Hypnoanalysis of a Criminal Psychopath, Nicholas Ray's groundbreaking 1955 drama offered a far more sympathetic look at the lives and problems of his generation's teenagers. Looking into James Dean's eyes on this beautiful half sheet, anyone who possesses a shred of empathy can see that this young man's real cause for defiance is simply a lack of true love and understanding. The poster displays impressively, and the montage also features Dean in his emblematic cherry windbreaker, blue jeans, and motorcycle boots. Professional restoration has addressed a few pinholes in the background, along with some fold wear, and paper loss in the upper right corner and background. The borders and white background area have been airbrushed, and the airbrushing is beginning to crack in a couple of places. The linen has been trimmed to the border. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
