    Description

    Psycho (Paramount, 1960). British Quad (30" X 40") Style B. Norman Bates had mother issues, there's no doubt about it, and Hitch himself apparently had issues with people arriving late to the theater, hence this amusing entry into the "no one will be admitted..." line of publicity. This is our first opportunity to offer this exceptional British quad, which is far rarer than the Janet Leigh version. The poster has undergone conservation with only minor paint touch-ups, and condition issues include fold wear with extra vertical folds, corner pinholes, surface wear (especially in the green lettering), a small abrasion in the lower right corner, and overall surface creasing. The poster still has a very sharp appearance, and the amusing image of Hitchcock makes this a must-have for any discerning collector. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
