Description

    The 39 Steps (Gaumont, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Considered one of the Alfred Hitchcock's finest works, The 39 Steps delved into one of the director's favorite topics; espionage. The story concerns a Mr. Hannay (Robert Donat) who goes on the run after he is accused of murdering a young woman who is a counter-espionage agent. Along the way he's aided by Madeleine Carroll as he seeks out the real spies to turn them in - in order to clear his own name. The film was a true thriller and propelled Hitchcock from a little known director to a star in his own right. To this day, original paper to this early work by the master of suspense is amongst the most collectible in the poster hobby and this one sheet is particularly elusive. The borders have been lightly airbrushed and there has been color touchup to the fold lines and correction for chipping in the upper centerpoint. The poster also had several tears, one just below Hitchcock's credit and another into Carroll's hair. There were several other tiny tears in the edges. All of this has been corrected and the poster is one of the brightest examples we've seen. Fine- on Linen.
