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.
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 pigmented and vivid.
Please enquire for framing and backing options.
