The hunk of the 1950s, James Dean, the man your grandmother was probably day-dreaming about. This film, "Rebel Without a Cause," was directed by Nicholas Ray. The film was a groundbreaking attempt to portray the moral decay of American youth, critique parental style, and explore the differences and conflicts between  generations. 

The title was adopted from psychiatrist Robert M. Lindner's 1944 book, Rebel Without a Cause: The Hypnoanalysis of a Criminal Psychopath. The film, however, does not make any references to Lindner's book in any way.

This Original Release Japanese Movie Poster is a very rare Tatekan (standing) poster size - which makes its existence exceedingly rare because of limited prints to this Japan-only size at the outset in 1955.

To our knowledge this is one of the very few that still exist. It is not sold in any large auctions in the West or East. We came across it from a collector of family generations.

The outstanding design is unique to Japan and the colours remain extremely pigminted and vivid. 

We are honored to be able to export some of Japan`s finest vintage posters from the Land of the Rising Sun to collectors around the world!

As stated above and as can be seen in the photos the condition is very very fine. The image is the exact poster that you will be purchasing so please refer to it also.

Do not miss out on this exclusive chance to own this jaw-dropping tatekan poster!

Please enquire for framing and backing options.

A Certificate of Authenticity Included.
