FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940 Spanish release)
Brepi Films 1940 - Vintage original 27 x 40" (69 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, Spain. Joel McCrea, Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, George Sanders, Albert Bassermann, Robert Benchley, Edmund Gwenn, dir: Alfred Hitchcock. Academy Award-nominated classic for which Hitchcock beautifully blended suspense, action and comedy. There was also a bold political statement, made just as the entire world went to war: neutrality will not work when others are bent on war. This film, along with REBECCA (which would win many of the Oscars that year), made a huge impression on America during Hitchcock's first year of Hollywood filmmaking. The Spanish artist has chosen to depict the very famous umbrella scene in a portion of this poster, as well as the plane which crashes and a brilliant full profile of Joel McCrea. This unique poster was for the 16mm release of the film in Spain, which occurred at about the same time as the theatrical release. Most of the poster art for this film is very ho-hum, and this is surely the nicest poster we have seen from any country. "From the Mark H. Wolff collection". On linen, there are a couple of mended tears, poster shows a slight rippling, but this very rare piece is quite attractive and displays very nicely, VERY GOOD.
