    Description

    "The James Dean Story" (Warner Brothers, 1957). Poster (40" X 60"). This is a rolled poster for the 1957 documentary about the life of James Dean. Using archival footage, pictures and interviews with family and friends, director Robert Altman skillfully told the tragic tale of the young star. This poster has several tears along the borders including an eight inch tear in the bottom border. There is wrinkling and cracking in the margins and image. Tape stains are present in the borders and there is a small tear at Dean's nose. The bottom right corner has been cut and there is a bit of toning. The image of Dean is a lasting tribute to the sad end of a far too short life. Good/Very Good on linen. From the James Dean Museum archive.
