A 1955 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Italian Two-Panel Movie Poster (measures 55" x 78") (Learn More)

Ladri di biciclette (released in the U.S. in 1949 as "The Bicycle Thief" and in England as "Bicycle Thieves"), the classic 1948 Vittorio De Sica Italian neorealist melodrama ("Academy Award outstanding foreign language film 1949"; about a man and his son who search for a vital missing bicycle; most people rightfully consider this one of the handful of absolute finest movies ever made!) starring Lamberto Maggiorani, Enzo Staiola, Lianella Carell, Gino Saltamerenda, and Vittorio Antonucci. Note that the Italian title literally translates to "The Bicycle Thieves", but for unknown reasons, the movie became "The Bicycle Thief" when it was released in English-speaking countries!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this Italian two-panel poster was printed in 2 sections (designed to overlap) and when combined, the poster measures approximately 55" x 78" and is linenbacked, and fits in our standard mailers. Also note that this is a rare "country of origin" poster from this classic Italian movie (it was re-released in Italy in 1955 with virtually the same art as the first release, but with notations of all the many international awards the movie had won in the upper right background area)!

Condition: fine. This poster was linenbacked and during the backing process, its defects were repaired and it now looks great! See below for its pre-restoration condition (we are the only major auction company we know of that shares this information with our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

fine. the poster was in excellent condition prior to linenbacking, and it looks great!
