DescriptionStrangers on a Train (Warner Bros., 1952). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.25" X 55") Luigi Martinati Artwork. From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
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. This illustration by Luigi Martinati is considered to be the best image on any paper produced for the film. Touchup has been applied to some of the pinholes, minor separations, and a few chips, some of which have splices. Still apparent are pinholes, minor paper lifts, faint ink writing bleedthrough, and unobtrusive stains.
Estimate: $1,800 - $3,600.
