Description

    The Bicycle Thief (ENIC, 1948). Italian Photobusta Set of 12 (13.5" X 19").
    Vittorio DeSica's neo-realist, heartbreaking film is one of the most beloved pictures of all time. It tells the story of Antonio Ricci (Lamberto Maggiorani), a poor Italian worker who has to recover his stolen bicycle in order to keep his job hanging posters. With his son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) at his side, Antonio searches all of Rome and comes to the point of stealing another bicycle out of desperation. Winner of an Honorary Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, this classic is still influential today. A few of these photobustas have one corner bend. Original country-of-origin paper from this title is always immensely popular, and in such wonderful condition, this photobusta set will be snapped up quickly. Very Fine/Near Mint.
