MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, THE (1934)$450.00
Vintage original trade ad, 12 1/2 x 9 1/4″ (32 x 23 cm.), UK. Leslie Banks, Edna Best, Peter Lorre, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Gaumont-British. Conservation paper-backed, with moderate touch up at right edge to address creases and other signs of use, VERY GOOD+.
Hitchcock’s classic thriller, which he remade two decades later, remains one of his signature British films — and, for a collector, a frustratingly elusive title. This trade ad, with its distinctive artwork of Lorre (with the dangling cigarette) and Best, presents an excellent piece with which to cover this famous title.
