DescriptionThe Lady Vanishes (Gaumont-20th Century Fox, 1938). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Adapted from the novel The Wheel Spins by Ethel Lina White, Alfred Hitchcock brilliantly directs this top thriller set aboard a train bound for England. British travelers Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave unwittingly become entangled in espionage, kidnapping, and murder, after Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty) disappears. The film was a smash hit, and was one of the final movies Hitchcock made in Britain before moving to Hollywood. This vibrant and rare poster was professionally conserved to address an upper left corner chip which extended into the orange background, as well as a reattached chip in the "A" of "Vanishes." There were pinholes in the corners and the lower left image. There was a small upper crossfold chip and a small border only chip in the lower left. There was fold touchup as well. The work was done nicely and the poster displays well. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
