North by Northwest is a towering suspense film made at the peak of Hitchcock’s incredible career — just after Vertigo and just prior to Psycho. Universally acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, North by Northwest was a novel take on the spy genre that still amazes audiences today. Guillermo Del Toro described it as a “perpetual-motion thriller machine” for the way it continued to ratchet up the suspense to nearly unbelievable proportions. A stunning film any way you slice it!
This Italian poster from Enzo Nistri is simply gorgeous and it features one of the best takes on the famous crop duster scene from any country or release. The translated title is also simply sublime. This poster is from the second release just 7 years after it first debuted in Italy and is equally rare as the first release Italian posters.
