Rare Film Posters

STAR MAKER

Original Italian 12 3/4 inch x 26 1/2 inch Locandina Poster for the 1995 Giuseppe Tornatore Movie Making Drama THE STAR MAKER (L’UOMO DELLE STELLE) starring Sergio Castellitto, Tiziana Lodato, Franco Scaldati, Jane Alexander and Clelia Rondinella.

The adventures and deceptions of a photographer who travels through the small villages of Sicily pretending that he is working for the big film studios in Rome.

The poster art is by Renato Casaro (born 1935). Casaro is considered to be one of the most important, influential and innovative Italian’s film poster artists producing hundreds of works dedicated to the cinema. In 1953, at the age of 18, he joined Studio Favalli, a famous design and art studio in Rome. Three years later he opened his own studio. In 1965 Dino De Laurentiis hired Casaro to design the poster images for the film The Bible: In the Beginning and he went on to design several more posters for De Laurentiis. His career then blossomed working for several different directors and film companies.

The poster is in very good condition with one horizontal fold.
