    Description

    Strangers on a Train (Warner Bros., 1951). Fine on Linen. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    This classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller finds two strangers (Robert Walker and Farley Granger) who meet by chance on a train, and have a strange conversation. The two agree to exchange murders, allowing both to avoid suspicion. Unfortunately, one man thinks the entire thing is a joke, while the other is deadly serious. Restoration has been applied to a couple of chips and tears, including a tear that extended from the lower border into Farley Granger's credit. Still visible are some smudges and several of the tears have post-restoration cracking in the airbrushing. During restoration the copyright information in the lower left had been painted over. The linen has been trimmed to the borders, but not into the poster.


    Estimate: $300 - $600.
