    North by Northwest (MGM, R-1966). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In one of director Alfred Hitchcock's greatest films, Cary Grant portrays the "everyday man" who unwittingly gets involved with a group of spies trying to kill him. The original posters for the film were fairly bland which was corrected with this clever reissue campaign. On the reissue posters, the crop-duster sequence is shown and Hitchcock, who was notorious for appearing in all of his films, also appears twice on this poster. He has become as big a star as Grant and appears on Mount Rushmore alongside the four Presidents. The posters for this reissue are far more desirable and valuable than the original. Co-starring with Grant are Eva Marie Saint, James Mason and Leo G. Carroll as the spymaster. The poster has had very minor color touch to the fold lines and some airbrushing to the white borders and the upper left section.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
