“A 2000 MILE CHASE…That blazes a trail of TERROR to a gripping, spine-chilling climax !”
Regarded (& rightly so) as one of the finest Alfred Hitchcock film posters. This beautiful Belgian One Panel for his 1959 thriller “North By Northwest” (“La Mort Aux Trousses”) is outstanding example of Belgian artwork, with a design unique to this release. Whilst US audiences had the now classic Saul Bass designs on most of Hitchcock’s posters this imagery remains an equally memorable piece. Painted art with deep, rich colour featuring Cary Grant And Eva Marie Saint and the classic “crop-duster” scene with Mount Rushmore as a dramatic backdrop. All contribute to make an exceptional classic film poster presented in excellent unrestored original condition and a fine piece of Alfred Hitchcock cinema memorabilia.
Trivia: This movie has often been referred to as “the first James Bond film” due to its similarities with splashily colourful settings, secret agents, and an elegant, daring, wisecracking leading man opposite a sinister yet strangely charming villain with the crop duster scene inspiring the helicopter chase in From Russia with Love (1963).
