    Rope (Warner Brothers, 1956). First Release Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    Adapted from the stage play by Patrick Hamilton, Rope proved to be one of director Alfred Hitchcock's most experimental films, as it was his first in color and filmed with long takes expertly edited together to look like one. Farley Granger and John Dall play a pair of amoral students who murder a classmate for fun, hide the body in a chest, and stage a dinner party with professor James Stewart in attendance. Artist Luigi Martinati did two paintings for this 4 foglio, as well as the 2 foglio. Both are outstanding likenesses of the star and are perhaps the best posters released for the film, though this larger style is taken from the U.S. one sheet. The poster has been mounted on linen with no touchup. There is a bottom left and top right corner chip, chip in the left border, tape stain in the bottom border, stain in the "t" of "Stewart," a tear in the top left border that extends to Stewart's head with a tape stain, misfolds, pinholes in the borders, and chips along the folds and at the crossfolds. Fine- on Linen.
