    Description

    Rear Window (Paramount, 1954). Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Tinged with the suspense that one expects from master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, this one sheet remains a top choice for movie poster collectors. The director cast one of his favorite leading men, James Stewart, in this tale of a photo-journalist who suspects he has witnessed a murder in the apartment building behind his. Most poignantly, Stewart's voyeurism acts as a dark reflection to that of the audience's, as they avidly watch the events unfolding on screen but are unable to act. The film also proves to be a sustained glimpse into the mind of Hitchcock himself, whose trade revolves around the constant observation of others, as well as the darkest parts of their nature. At the time of its construction, the set for Rear Window was the largest indoor set ever created at Paramount with running water and electricity to all of the apartments. This highly collectible poster has received restoration to correct light fold wear, slight fold separations, and minor tears. There were two mirrored crimps and slight tears with minor surface cuts in the left side of the image. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
