Part of a larger collection of Alfred Hitchcock posters (+ other rarities) acquired in Kansai Region by Japan Poster Shop.
We are very honored to have this extremely rare piece of cinematic history in our store.
This poster was printed for the first release of Strangers on a Train in Japan in 1953.
It is now our mission to export Japan`s finest movie art to collectors from the rest of the world.
As stated above and as can be seen in the photos the condition is very very good, the poster has been laid flat for many decades. The image is the exact poster that you will be purchasing so please refer to it also. There is some slight edge wear and a pinhole in each corner.
"Strangers on a Train is a 1951 American psychological thriller film noir produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and based on the 1950 novel Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith. It was shot in the autumn of 1950 and released by Warner Bros. on June 30, 1951.
The film stars Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, and Robert Walker. It features Leo G. Carroll, Pat Hitchcock (the director's daughter), and Laura Elliott (later known as Kasey Rogers). It is number 32 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Thrills.
The story concerns two strangers who meet on a train, a young tennis player and a charming psychopath. The psychopath suggests that because they each want to "get rid" of someone, they should "exchange" murders, and that way neither will be caught. The psychopath commits the first murder, then tries to force the tennis player to complete the bargain." (Source: Wikipedia)
