    Psycho (Paramount, 1960). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    A complete set of lobby cards from the original release of Psycho is an exceedingly rare find, making this lot irresistible for Alfred Hitchcock fans. Based on the best-selling book by Robert Bloch, which was in turn based on a series of gruesome, real-life murders in Plainfield, Wisconsin, this is the story of Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), who just loves his mother to death. In a clever move by Hitch, he bought the rights from Bloch for $9,000 and then attempted to buy up as many copies of the book as possible in order to keep the ending a secret. The most sought after card in the set, the "house" card, has been cleaned and touch-up applied to pinholes, with remarkable results. One or more of the remaining cards may have pinholes in the corners or in the image area, a stain in the left border, an edge tear with tape on the verso, grease pencil on the verso, and a scuff in Leigh's arm. Fine/Very Fine.
