Vintage original 28 x 22" (70 x 55 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, John Williams, Anthony Dawson, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Warner Brothers. Based on a Broadway play, the cat and mouse dialogued script took place mostly in one room, Hitchcock building the tension as only he could. The classic artwork for the poster campaign -- the finest example of which is featured on this half sheet poster -- evoked the feeling of 3-D for a climactic moment in the story. The film was shot in 3-D but received only a very limited release in that format. Poster is in original, unbacked condition with folds. The color is flawless. There is storage wear at the edges, tiny tears and creasing to the top left edge blank white margin, a single pin hole at top right and left corners and top center, and a tear hole near the bottom left corner to the left of the copyright information.

Book Description Warner Brothers, 1954. No Binding. Book Condition: Near Fine. Set of two (2) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) color-tinted single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photos, USA. Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, John Williams, Anthony Dawson, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Warner Brothers. Based on a Broadway play, the cat-and-mouse dialogued script took place mostly in one room, Hitchcock building the tension as only he could. In a tense moment when Grace Kelly has just killed the man who her husband hired to murder her, Hitchcock requested that Kelly be costumed in a robe, but she insisted that the character would get up to answer the phone when alone at night wearing whatever she was sleeping in, thus Grace in her slip in the image. Hitchcock saw that she was right and allowed her to make her own costume choices from that point on. The one image shows her with Ray Milland, who plays her husband as he discovers that his plan has gone wrong. The second image is between Kelly, Milland, Robert Cummings who plays her lover, and thus the reason for the husband's jealousy and John Williams as the inspector who unravels the case. The photos are coded 810-17 and 804-838. Filmed for 3-D, though released only for a short while in that version. There is a small tear at the right side top border, ABOUT FINE.
