        Rear Window 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 1950s Hitchcock classic, Rear Window. Hitherto that hasn't been the case and the ones that were on the market were at silly prices. Until now...more

        ICON & ICONOGRAPHY


        If nothing else this film is the perfect example on why Hitch is the greatest film director ever. In the confined space of an apartment looking out on the other apartments he creates a suspenseful filled couple of hours that never flags. How many directors could do that? A film without a moment's boredom. It's just pure genius. In fact even though the film was made entirely on one confined set built at Paramount Studios - a realistic courtyard composed of 32 apartments (12 completely furnished) - at a non-existent address in Manhattan (125 W. 9th Street), it has inspired many to go and look for the actual setting! I think that is because once you enter Rear Window you just don't want to come away! The voyeuristic element of looking into other peoples' lives is a very dangerous intoxication - of course Hitch knew that better than anyone and played it to the full.

        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.

        But even better than that 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!
