Giant drawings by Ed Bearden
Before shooting “Giant,” director George Stevens asked the late Dallas artist and SMU art professor Ed Bearden to draw the film’s storyboards. Stevens wanted a Texas native to conceive the characters visually in order to capture their authenticity. Bearden’s pen portraits were enlarged and displayed on the set as a guide to makeup and costume crews.
The artist also went to Marfa during shooting to sketch on the “Giant” set. Several of his drawings appeared with John Rosenfield’s article on the “Giant” shoot in the Autumn 1956 Southwest Review. The following are used with permission of Bearden’s wife, Frances, who traveled with him to West Texas to see the cast and crew in action.
