    Description

    Psycho (Paramount, 1960). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). Hitchcock.
    In the original novel by Robert Bloch, Norman Bates is an overweight, middle-aged drunkard, but director Alfred Hitchcock (and screenwriter Joe Stefano) cannily realized that Norman should be young and appealing, if a bit sad, and casting the boyish, handsome Anthony Perkins in the role would throw suspicion away from Norman as the killer. It worked brilliantly, and audiences of the day were truly shocked at the film's conclusion. This magnificent six sheet has an evocative image of Janet Leigh in her undies, heightened by sharp, bright colors. Condition issues are minor and include small holes, creases and tears in the image, a tear in the credits area, and fold wear with crossfold separations, all of which has been smoothed over with professional restoration. Very Fine- on Linen
