TO CATCH A THIEF (1955) POSTER, US
Very good condition, with the colours remaining very bright. Minor restoration to folds and a few pinholes on the corner, and the top and bottom of the poster in the background, that do not affect the artwork.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
This is one of Alfred Hitchcock's highly praised thrillers. This film makes spectacular use of its Riviera setting, car chases along perilous winding roads, and romantic pauses along the glittering Mediterranean coast, which creates an effect that is both glamorous and suspenseful. The film pairs two of Hitchcock's preferred actors, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant.
This stylish re-release poster features entirely different artwork to the film's original release poster, and was designed for a small re-release of the film ten years after its initial showing.
