NORTH BY NORTHWEST, Alfred Hitchcock Cary Grant Original Linen Backed and Restored Vintage Movie Theater Poster

NORTH BY NORTHWEST, 1959. Original Vintage Classic 1 Sheet (27″41″) Movie Theater Poster starring, Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Director Alfred Hitchcock and Writer Ernest Lehman.

One of The Master of Suspense´s most legendary films, this poster is a beautiful representation of the mental maze the viewer is taken through as the story twists turns and beautifully unravels itself.

This poster is one of several posters we have recently acquired from the Roxy Theater Discovery in Clarkfield, MN. We acquired these posters from a Gentleman who was working with the  City Public Works Department. The county had him and other workers tear down the theater and in the process several posters were discovered in a dumpster! The story of the theater is that it closed in 1967 and since the 60s the theater went into disrepair and eventually went back to the county for taxes. The county not realizing what they had, threw the posters in a dumpster, where this movie poster hero promptly recovered them.

The poster has been linen backed and painstakingly restored by our conservationist Harry Proctor. For a in depth look at this posters transformation <Click Here> but in short, it had tears and coffee stains that were repaired through a cleaning and bleaching process. The poster is now displayed and for sale at our gallery in Katy, Texas.

Condition is C6-7 LB Sold for $975
