    Description

    Jane Eyre (20th Century Fox, 1946). First Post-War Release Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
    Charlotte Bronte's gothic novel is vividly brought to the screen in this excellent version directed by Robert Stevenson. Joan Fontaine plays the title character who is brought to Thornfield Manor as a governess by the brooding and mysterious Edward Rochester, brilliantly played here by Orson Welles. This is perhaps the best adaptation of romantic tale, thanks to the talented cast and the screenplay written by novelist Aldous Huxley and John Houseman. The poster has fold wear with chips, edge wear, smudges in the borders, pinholes in the image, a minor stamp to the left of Fontaine's name, and a tear in the left side. It has been mounted on linen, and has had minimal restoration. The amazing artwork of Fontaine and Welles on this first post-war release poster is by the Italian artist N. Firgo. Fine+ on Linen.
