    Description

    Rio Grande (Republic, 1951). Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Nicola Simbari Artwork. Italian Title: Rio Bravo.
    John Ford's best and last film in the calvary trilogy (along with Fort Apache and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon), Rio Grande teamed the director with John Wayne once again, who is reprising his role as Col. Kirby Yorke. Maureen O'Hara co-stars and went on to make four more films with Wayne. Shot on location in Utah, the film offers spectacular vistas in addition to action-packed battles and a compelling storyline involving the Colonel, his wife, and their young cavalryman son. The essence of the film is brought aptly to life by artist Nicola Simbari (From Here to Eternity, Fighting Caravans, Night Song.) A Heritage first, this original Italian release poster has been restored on linen. The result is a fine looking showpiece that will be prized by any John Wayne or Western collector. Touchup to the folds, a small blemish in the top right black background, and a tear in the top right corner. Very Fine on Linen.
