    Description

    House on Haunted Hill (Paramount, 1959). Laminated, Fine-. Australian One Sheet (27" X 40").
    Frederick Loren (Vincent Price) makes several strangers an offer they can't refuse: spend a single night in my haunted mansion and receive $10,000. The catch is, they have to be alive to collect in the morning! This fun film earned such large profits - no doubt bolstered by producer William Castle's usage of the "Emergo" gimmick, in which a plastic skeleton on a wire flew out at the audience at a key point in the film - that it led director Alfred Hitchcock to create his own low-budget horror picture, Psycho. Offered for the first time at Heritage is the only known copy of this film's Australian one sheet, a piece boasting vibrant, stunning colors. It has light edge wear, slight fold wear and separations, and unobtrusive stains. The poster has been laminated, and post-lamination wear includes creases, a small hole in the right background, and the lamination is beginning to separate in the lower right corner. Folded, Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,600 - $3,200.
