Original U.S. Half-Sheet Poster (22x28) Average Used

Original U.S. half-sheet poster (22x28) for the Alfred Hitchcock crime thriller, REAR WINDOW (1954) starring James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter, and Raymond Burr. The poster was created for Universal's release of the film in 1962. The first release was of course from Paramount in 1954. Considered by many critics to be one of Hitchcock's masterpieces, this film tells the story of a wheelchair bound photographer (Stewart), who spies on his neighbors from his apartment window and becomes convinced that one of them has committed murder. The film focuses on the seduction of crime, not in committing it but in the act of discovering it. The entire movie was shot on one set, the largest indoor set ever built at Paramount studios at the time. Stewart finds the perfect combination of obsessiveness and moral outrage. Grace Kelly is incandescent in the movie and Thelma Ritter adds that thing that only Thelma Ritter has. A small inset photo of Raymond Burr ("Perry Mason") is lower left. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Screenplay. This American re-release half sheet was used in a cinema in Canada, and it has a Province of Quebec censor notification rubber-stamped on it. We have graded it in very good condition. The poster shows signs of general use and some wear. There is a small tear in the left border area, and some general smudging. With restoration, this poster could be improved significantly, or use it as it with it's antique patina in place. With Hitch pictured on the poster (he was not shown on the original 1954 posters) it is a classic for his fans.
