    Psycho (Paramount, 1960). Poster (40" X 60").
    All the stars aligned properly for this suspenseful production, from the taut direction by Alfred Hitchcock, to a memorable and evocative score by Bernard Hermann, to the film's truly exceptional cast. Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins lead the way with their riveting performances, with Perkins creating one of the most terrifying monsters in the history of film, the tortured Norman Bates. Not surprisingly, paper from this picture is highly prized by collectors, with this humorous 40" X 60" being of particular interest. In an excellent example of smart showmanship, Hitchcock himself reminds moviegoers that any entry into the theatre after the start time is expressly forbidden, and that errant patrons will be removed by any means necessary. Undoubtedly one of the best American advertisements ever made for the picture's original release, the poster shows small tears in the borders, mild offset, and a dust shadow in the bottom left border. It has extra folds and a tear in the bottom border and background with paper tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
