ALFRED HITCHCOCK / THE MAN FROM HOME (1922)
ALFRED HITCHCOCK / THE MAN FROM HOME (1922) $225.00

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. James Kirkwood, Anna Q. Nilsson, Geoffrey Kerr, Norman Kerry, dir: George Fitzmauric: Paramount. Paramount made some of the most innovative and decorative of lobby cards during the silent era. This card, with early Art Deco influence, is no exception.

Filmed on location in Italy, it is the story of an American heiress whose fiancé saves a fisherman accused of stabbing his wife. It was based on a Booth Tarkington play. What is most significant about this film is that the art director and title designer was Alfred Hitchcock.

Anny Ondra, Sara Allgood, Charles Paton, John Longden, Donald Calthrop, dir: Alfred Hitchcock, Sono-Art. Historic film, not only being the first sound film to be directed by Alfred Hitchcock, but also noted as the first British sound film. Hitchcock and crew were still using silent film techniques, but this added to the suspenseful atmosphere.

In the same dark genre of Notorious and Vertigo, the story involves a woman whose boyfriend is a Scotland Yard detective, far more interested in his work than...

Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, John Williams, Anthony Dawson, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Warner Brothers.

Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 70 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Joel McCrea, Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, George Sanders, Albert Bassermann, Robert Benchley, Edmund Gwenn, dir: Alfred Hitchcock. Academy Award-nominated classic for which Hitchcock beautifully blended suspense, action and comedy. There was also a bold political statement, made just as the entire world went to war, that neutrality will not work when others are bent on war. This film, along with Rebecca (which would win many of the Oscars that year) made a huge impression on America during Hitchcock's first year of Hollywood film making. Gary Cooper and...

A woman with psychological problems was the subject Hitchcock chose to explore in this story from a Winton Graham novel. She is a thief, a liar and can't stand the touch of a man. This all causes trouble for her, particularly when a handsome man marries her. He does all he can to help her out, but it seems that it is only a confrontation with her mother...

PSYCHO (1960)
PSYCHO (1960) $300.00

Vintage original 7 x 9 " (17 x 23 cm.) black-and-white single weight semi-glossy print still photo, Spain. A very unusual exterior display for the film during its first release in Spain during the Spring of 1961. In Spanish-speaking countries the film was titled Psicosis. Hitchcock was so popular in these countries by 1960 that his image would greatly enhance the selling of a film. The famous cut out of Hitchcock pointing to his watch was installed inside and outside all theatres showing the film indicating that no patrons would be allowed into the theatre once the film had started.

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photo, UK. Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Anthony Perkins, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Paramount. One of the original British front of house set, which are on heavy paper similar to that used for U.S. lobby cards, but which was actually a really nicely, and very sharply printed, photo.

This is a famous scene from early in the film -- Janet Leigh works in a realty office, and the gentleman on the right is buying his daughter a house as a wedding present, with huge wads of cash -- with...

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photo, UK. Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Anthony Perkins, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Paramount. One of the original British front of house set, which are on heavy paper similar to that used for U.S. lobby cards, but which was actually a really nicely, and very sharply printed, photo.

A tense scene from later in the film -- Gavin (Sam Loomis) and Miles (Lila Crane) have gone, late at night, to the home of Sheriff Chambers (John McIntyre), who is now on the phone with Norman Bates (Perkins) inquiring about...

REAR WINDOW (1954)
REAR WINDOW (1954) $3,000.00

Vintage original 14 x 36" (35 x 91 cm.) insert poster, USA. James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Paramount. The story of an apartment-bound man who takes an interest in the many neighbors living in the building behind him, including the revelation of a murder.

An interesting aspect which helped create the world in which James Stewart's character lived, is that all of the sounds were "live" -- all dialogue, the sounds of people, autos and all music cues, were sounds which were live within the story. Just another wonderful Hitchcock touch.

Minor border wear repaired and...
