Product Description

Alfred Hitchcock s style was unmistakable, and his films more than ever are revered the world over any list of the greatest films of all time is sure to include titles like "Psycho", "Dial M for Murder", "Vertigo", and "North by Northwest."

In this lavishly produced book, Wolff and Nourmand have collected all the best promotional art including posters, lobby cards, and other promotional materials of Hitchcock s entire career, including material so rare that the copy photographed for this book is the only one known to have survived. Among the treasures displayed: an American poster for "Woman to Woman", the 1923 film for which Hitchcock wrote the screenplay and served as assistant director and art director; a poster for the first film he directed, "The Pleasure Garden" of 1925; and material from classic films like "Strangers on a Train" and "To Catch a Thief". The collection consists of at least one item for each of the thirty-nine movies Hitchcock directed and art from America, Great Britain, Europe, and Japan. Hitchcock Poster Art is an indispensable reference for all enthusiasts of Hitchcock and film in general, providing a fascinating look at the international scope of the master s influence and appeal.

The varied emphases in these multicultural come-ons are fascinating . . . the images speak volumes about Hitchcock s talent for arousing audiences prurient interests. Entertainment Weekly
