James Dean 1955 East of Eden UK Quad film poster

£3,000.00 £2,850.00

Scarce UK quad poster for the original release of this celluloid adaption of John Steinbeck’s seminal novel published in 1952.

UK  Quad  poster -approximately 40″ x30 ” ( 762mm x 1020mm) – was sent out folded to Cinema owner’s for display outside their theatre. They were never for sale  to the public and were technically property of the film company, who  often collected and then burned them.  However some thankfully survived ….

This poster has been professionally laid flat to minimise the original folds. It has then been backed on to archival Japanese tissue by professional paper conservationists.

There are no rips or tears beyond very minor nicks in the edge. The hinges (where it was originally folded) are all fine, with no wear. It has never been displayed and therefore there is no discolouration, especially in the reds : the first colour to fade. The only  detraction is a minor printing  fault, where ink has been allowed to rub over yellow areas.

Overall a VG++ poster that displays extremely well.
