    Description

    Psycho (Paramount, 1960). Poster (40" X 60"). One of the most terrifying movies ever made, this film, based on a story by Robert Bloch, set the bar for all thrillers to come. All the stars aligned properly for this suspenseful production, from the taut direction by Alfred Hitchcock, to a memorable and evocative score by Bernard Hermann, to an exceptional cast, headed by stars Janet Leigh (as Marion Crane) and Anthony Perkins, who creates one of the most terrifying monsters in the history of film, the tortured Norman Bates. Not surprisingly, paper from this picture is highly prized by collectors, with this style, the striking 40" X 60", being one of the rarest. This particular example shows a few pinholes in the image area and in the borders, edge wear, a tear in the right border, a stain in the top center border, and a very small area of paper lift in the title area. Despite these minor flaws, the poster presents beautifully, making it a piece that no poster enthusiast will want to pass up. Rolled, Very Fine-.
