    Strangers on a Train (Warner Bros., 1951). Folded, Very Fine+. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Luigi Martinati Artwork.
    Another classic thriller from Alfred Hitchcock, the director weaves this tale of murder and suspense with a deft hand, slowly tightening the noose of terror around Farley Granger's neck with each scene. Based on Patricia Hightower's eponymous novel and with climatic elements from Edmund Crispin's story The Moving Toyshop, this picture features one of Hitchcock's most memorable climaxes in his career, the brutal brawl between Granger and Robert Walker on a wild carousel, an amazing sight with its stunning special effects. Luigi Martinati's colorful palette plays off of Hitch's pervasive contrast of darkness and light, using the romantic pastel image of Granger in the background to bring out the violent blood red coating of Walker. There are only a few minor defects in this excellent poster, showing pinholes in the borders at the joint, pinpoint crossfold separations, creasing in the credit and title area, and a pen mark in the left border. There are minor stains in the upper left background and a tear with three small chips in the upper borders.
