“Notorious Woman of many Desires ! Fateful Fascination ! Bold Intrigue !”
A beautifully presented film poster for the 2019 BFI re-release for classic Alfred Hitchcock’s classic “Notorious”. The black and white imagery features a romantic close-up of both Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. Printed on a heavier than normal stock paper the ‘skin’ tones have been printed using a metallic ink process which has resulted in the whole poster resembling a large gelatin silver photograph…really striking effect. As a general rule BFI re-release posters are incredibly scarce due to limited print runs and distribution, being shown in literally a handful of independent and ‘art-house’ cinemas with the updated imagery often superior to many of the original release designs. The 2019 rolled (as issued) UK quad offered here is from the 4K remastered release that displays to excellent effect with a stunning high quality photographic image. An impressive looking item and a fine piece of affordable Hitchcock cinema memorabilia from one of this influential Director’s best regarded releases.
