Paramount Pictures Original U.S. One Sheet Poster Linen-Backed Very Fine Condition Linen Backed

Original Paramount Pictures One-Sheet Poster (27x41) poster for the Alfred Hitchcock mystery thriller masterpiece, VERTIGO (1958) starring James Stewart, Kim Novak, and Barbara Bel Geddes. Linen backed. This Hitchcock classic tells the story of a former San Francisco detective (Stewart) suffering from acrophobia who investigates the strange activities of an old friend's wife, all the while becoming dangerously obsessed with her. Hitchcock creates some of his most hypnotic scenes in this film as well as a general sense of unease and dread-- even in seemingly banal situations. Bernard Herrmann's excellent score is a perfect complement to this complex and suspenseful story. The score is perhaps more important here than it most films, because much of the story is told simply with Stewart's and Novak's facial expressions and the music. Stewart gives one of the best performances of his career, and Novak is completely convincing in her dual roles. This is perhaps the most well known and desired Saul Bass designed one-sheet. The interior image area of the poster is quite great, with great color and few distresses, if any. Paper quality is very fine in this area. However, when we found the poster the border area was torn and in some places there were chips out of the border. So, when the poster was linen-backed we had the borders carefully replaced with aged one-sheet paper from the same period. This has been expertly executed and this poster presents beautifully. The linen-lip has been trimmed somewhat because the poster was previously in a frame. This trimming does not affect the poster intself. Overall, a beautiful poster. The VERTIGO one-sheet poster frequently exhibits changes in the background red-orange color. This poster does not. There is no evidence of fading. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic, original one-sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
