Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen-Backed Very Fine Condition

Original Paramount Pictures One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Alfred Hitchcock horror-thriller masterpiece, PSYCHO (1960) starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, and John Gavin. Considered by many critics to be the best horror movie of all time, this film was superlative in every way. Starting with one a tense screenplay by Joseph Stefano based on the novel by Robert Bloch-- the acting is perfect, the cinematography of John L. Russell is beautiful, and the soundtrack by Bernard Herrmann is exceptional. However, the outstanding direction by Hitchcock is the crowning touch of this great film. The handling of every nuance gestures, glances, and sudden changes in lighting is masterful. The acting by Janet Leigh has often been praised, but the performance by Anthony Perkins with his facial tics and half-swallowed words is subtle, cool, unsettling, and just plain creepy. Prior to PSYCHO, horror movies were monsters, zombies, werewolves, and vampires. This film was the first true "psychological thriller." Though we have become jaded with legions of realistic gore films since this movie was released, seeing a nude woman murdered in the shower was something no one had experienced yet in 1960. This poster was in very nice native condition with a small separation at the fold line, so we had the poster linen-backed and it presents beautifully.
