MGM Original U.S. 30x40 Poster Linen-Backed Fine Plus Condition

MGM Original 30x40 poster (1959) for the Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959), starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, Leo G. Carroll, James Mason, and Martin Landau. One of the most famous of Hitchcock's films of the 1950s, NORTH BY NORTHWEST is endlessly entertaining. Quoting from THE MOTION PICTURE GUIDE: "One of Hitchcock's best, NORTH BY NORTHWEST has everything - thrills, suspense, intrigue, mystery, humor and no little comedy, black as a coal pit, of course, in keeping with the darkly whimsical perspective of that pantheon director. Grant, Saint, Mason and Carroll are simply marvelous in their intricate roles, and, aside from Grant, it's hard to tell whether they're good or bad until the film has dragged the viewer feet-first into the complex plot. Peril of the common man or not-so-common man is always at the apex of any Hitchcock tale and this film is no exception." This is one of the trickiest of Hitchcock films and his last film with Cary Grant. The famous finale on Mount Rushmore and the crop duster buzzing Cary Grant are among the most famous Hitchcock screen moments. The film was produced by Ernest Lehman and has an unforgettable score by Bernard Herrmann. The 30x40 is one of the rarest posters on this title. It is fair to say that a only a few of these posters have surfaced. It is much less common than the one-sheet poster, and, unlike the one-sheet is in full color. This example was used in the theater and had some distresses. We purchased the poster linen-backed and the restoration is of a good quality. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. 30x40 for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
