Description

    The Bicycle Thief (ENIC, R-1952). Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    Classic film Neorealism compliments of Vittorio De Sica, shot in a largely improvisational manner with non-professional actors. It follows a man and his son searching for a stolen bicycle that is vital to the father's job. Artist Ercole Brini created this sentimental Italian foglio for the 1952 re-issue of the title, with a muted color palette that suits the film's somber tone. The poster has masking tape on the verso along the folds (separations) that overlaps in a couple of places on the front, misfolds, pinholes, a chip in the left bottom border, and light stains in the bottom left and right corners. Despite these signs of handling, the poster displays well and is an excellent piece of Italian film nostalgia. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
