Original Paramount Pictures Half Sheet Poster (22x28) Style B poster for the Alfred Hitchcock mystery thriller masterpiece, VERTIGO (1958) starring James Stewart, Kim Novak, and Barbara Bel Geddes. This Hitchcock classic tells the story of a former San Francisco detective (Stewart) suffering from acrophobia who investigates the strange activities of an old friend's wife, all the while becoming dangerously obsessed with her. Hitchcock creates some of his most hypnotic scenes in this film as well as a general sense of unease and dread-- even in seemingly banal situations. Bernard Herrmann's excellent score is a perfect complement to this complex and suspenseful story. The score is perhaps more important here than it most films, because much of the story is told simply with Stewart's and Novak's facial expressions and the music. Stewart gives one of the best performances of his career, and Novak is completely convincing in her dual roles. This is one of two different half sheets done for VERTIGO by Saul Bass - and the rarer one at that, which features small inset photos of Stewart and Novak.
