    Description

    James Dean Flyer with Three Drawings. James Dean, flush with success after the opening of The Immoralist, took an 8.5" x 11" flyer for Women of Trachis and created on the back a nearly naked harpooner preparing to spear a roped, dangling, leering hot dog (a giant roll and jar of mustard flank the harpooner); a fish alarmed to see it has lost its tail; and a weird creature with a treble-clef tail, oozing an aura of 1950s cool. Freudians could have a field day analyzing these images. Suffice to say, they certainly convey Dean's wild and wicked imagination. Small dashes of black ink have bled through the front to the back, touching a bit of the harpoon, but the item is in overall Excellent condition. Some amazing insight into the whims and fantasies of James Dean. From the James Dean Museum archive. With COA from David Loehr.
