This gem has its original bright colors. Very good condition for this larger style full-sheet poster which is typically in bad shape as most theater owners folded them, and hence because of the heavier thicker stock paper then traditional one sheet incurred heavy crease lines..

This is master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock's clever tale of an advertising executive (Cary Grant) mistaken for a dangerous international spy and pursued cross country. Eva Marie Saint stars as the mysterious blond who helps him unravel the truth behind the enigmatic chase. While this 30 X 40 uses the same Saul Bass design as the one sheet, it is decidedly different as it is in full color, not duotone. VERY RARE as only one or two of this special style have ever surfaced in the past 30 years!
Prior to Professional Paperbacking, the poster had some crinkling and wear. There were some tears in the border area scuff marks and wear to the borders.. But those were the only minor issues that required restoration.
