        Dial M For Murder Poster Store Index
        I C O N O G R A P H Y


        July 2011:


        I have always thought there would be a great market for reproduction posters at realistic and reasonable prices of the various promo releases from this much-loved (though not by all at the time it was released) 1950s Hitchcock classic, Dial M For Murder. Hitherto that hasn't been the case and the ones that were on the market were at silly prices. Until now...more

        ICON & ICONOGRAPHY


        This is a film to this day you either love or hate. You either find the stagey one-apartment movie compelling or you find it claustraphobiclly (is tha a word?) boring. Whatever, it's as if Hitch was perfecting the enclosed setting for his masterpiece of the same year, Rear Window. And I do wish that somewhere in Maida Vale this place exists and the ghosts of Kelly, Milland and Cummings float about. A bit like Blithe Spirit, I guess.

        Back to the posters: I've found a company called Pop Culture based in America who have the biggest selection of Alfred Hitchcock posters that I have ever seen. Spans his whole career and are reproduction posters from film releases all over the world. Each film release had completely different artwork for the posters in each country, it would seem. It is interesting to see what images various counries picks up on as their main theme for a poster. Sometimes it does vary and some like the Polish posters bear absolutely no relation to any of the other posters.

        But even better than the variety of posters are the prices (as of July 2011) which are affordable and very reasonable. Also, these posters are not items that you will find on every high street or any high street for that matter.

        They sell through Amazon.com & Amazon.co.uk and I have created a sub-index for each film release (like this one) as there are a multitude of different posters for each film release. From the sub-index you can see bigger scans of each poster on seperate pages. I did this mainly to show as big a scan as possible on a page as they do look beautiful when the images are big. Plus I wanted to show them against a black background as I think they look far more striking (the artist and architect Hundertwasser always advocated having his work shown against a black background). Each page can hold an even bigger scan of the poster so if you have any bigger of a particular poster just e-mail me it here and I'll place it on the page. I also want to use these pages as a kind of archive for Alfred Hitchcock posters from his whole career and from around the world; even if the posters aren't for sale it would be good to have a place where they can be viewed. I can't do this without your help so if you want to share your scans then you know what to do.

        You can also see Pop Culture's Alfred Hitchcock Posters index page by clicking here.

        I have put a buying link on each page to the particular poster at the bottom of each page so it is simple to order or find out more details.

        Hope you enjoy the vast selection!
