IS “BURN AFTER READING” THE NEW “VERTIGO”; MOVIE POSTER ? THIS SAUL BASS INSPIRED ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER IS SET TO BECOME A MODERN CLASSIC.

With the TV series “HOUSE” now back on our screens (SKY 1 9.00 pm Sunday’s) I have had several enquiries from people wishing to purchase a “Vertigo” 1958 movie poster. This is the striking poster proudly displayed in the office of House’s best friend Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard).

The Vertigo movie poster is considered a true classic amongst collectors. Not just because it is one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best films but primarily for the design and artwork by Saul Bass
who to many has produced the perfect poster. Comprising a mysterious central image and stark background color, with a minimum of distracting text. However perfection doesn’t come cheap, I sold my last Vertigo movie poster to a private collector for in excess of £3,000. It is becoming increasingly scarce to acquire with premiums being asked for examples that grade very fine plus or are unrestored.

If your budget doesn’t stretch to the thousands of pounds I can honestly recommend a much cheaper alternative in the movie poster for the Joel and Ethan Coen movie “Burn After Reading”.
