Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Mexican Movie Poster (measures 26 3/4" x 36 1/2") (Learn More)

Los Olvidados (released in English-speaking countries as "The Young and the Damned" and also as "The Forgotten Ones"), the 1950 (released in the U.S. in 1951 [Spanish language] and 1952 [subtitled]) Luis Bunuel Mexican teen juvenile delinquent melodrama (about the many wild Mexican children who roam the streets of Mexico after World War II, living in great poverty, and stealing or doing whatever they could to survive) starring Alfonso Mejia, Estela Inda, Miguel Inclan, Roberto Cobo, and Alma Delia Fuentes. Note that this is widely considered one of the greatest Mexican movies ever, even though it was made by Luis Bunuel, who was from Spain. He filmed the movie in Mexico soon after World War II, and he was obviously greatly influenced by Vittorio De Sica's "Sciuscia" (Shoeshine) from 1946, and perhaps even the Dead End Kid movies of the 1930s. This movie resembles "The Lord of the Flies", in that it shows just how lawless and cruel children can be when they grow up in awful circumstances. It is not an easy movie to watch, but it absolutely should be seen! Note that in 1981, Hector Babenco made the movie "Pixote", which was clearly an homage to this movie.

Important Added Info: Note that this Mexican poster measures 26 3/4" x 36 1/2" and has been linenbacked.

Condition: very good. the poster was linenbacked; prior to restoration the entire poster had darkened, typical of Mexican posters of this period; the poster had minor border defects and they were well restored; there were extra creases and some scuff marks to the left and right of the bottom half of the vertical foldline as well as minor creases along the foldlines and these have been greatly minimized by the linenbacking process; the poster looks quite nice!
