Il Bidone (1955)
Film: Il Bidone (1955) Year poster printed: 1956 (first release of the film in France) Country: France Size: 15.5” x 21.75” (plus small linen border) Artist: Yves Thos
This is an original French movie poster from 1956 for Il Bidone starring Broderick Crawford, Giulietta Masina, Richard Basehart, Franco Fabrizi, and Sue Ellen Blake. Federico Fellini directed the classic film. Yves Thos is the artist for the poster. The movie was titled "The Swindle" when released in the United States in 1962.
The French petite poster measures 15.5” x 21.75” and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good to very good condition prior to linen-backing. It had some fold wear and an 8" vertical tear at the top of the poster. The poster was originally folded after printing but the folds are much less noticeable after linen-backing. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1956 to promote the initial French release of Il Bidone, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
