  • Notes:

    An Original Eight-Piece 11 X 14 Lobby Card Set from the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock Horror/Thriller film “Psycho” starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh and Vera Miles. The story surrounds a woman (Leigh) entrusted with $40,000 by her employer.  She decides to steal the money and run off so that she can start a new life with her boyfriend.  While heading out of town she decides to pull off the interstate and stay at the old “Bates Motel”.  The woman is never seen again.  Her sister and a private detective begin searching for her and trace her whereabouts to the “Bates Motel” where they believe she was last seen.  Arguably director Alfred Hitchcock’s best known film and the highest grossing of his career, “Psycho” has become one of the most recognizable films in cinematic history and the legendary “shower scene” is considered one of the most frightening scenes ever filmed.  It is widely noted that Hitchcock bought the rights to the novel “Psycho” from author Robert Bloch for only $9,000 then went all over the west coast purchasing as many copies of the novel as he could find in effort to keep the ending a secret.  “Psycho” was the one film Hitchcock required in theater’s contracts that no one arriving late to the film would be admitted until the next showing.  This was Hitchcock’s attempt at keeping the murder of star actress Janet Leigh a secret and added more drama to the film’s campaign.  Offered here is the scarcer complete set of all Original Eight 11 X 14 Lobby Cards used in the films 1960 theatrical campaign showing many of the key scenes from the film including the infamous Bates Motel card.  The set, as a whole, is conservatively graded Fine with mild handling wear, tiny creases and wear in the borders of each of the cards.  The color-strike and gloss on these Lobby Cards is amazing and it’s certainly the closest thing to a time warp you can possibly find! A great set of Lobby Cards. Fine.
