Classic Entertainment Autographs


Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Big, bold vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4.5 x 6-inch lined notebook leaf, acquired in-person by a busy New York City-based autograph hound at the fabled 21 Club in June of 1951, while Strangers on a Train was in theaters. In good condition, with very slight damp-staining to the bottom edge, well away from the writing, which is excellent for matting with a favorite photograph. Deliciously macabre five-time Oscar nominated director Alfred Hitchcock, who was posthumously recognized by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films in 1994, is remembered by fans of the genre for Psycho (1960), The Birds (1963) and his T.V. series, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” (1955-1961). His countless classic films in other genres, many of which involved aspects of horror, included Sabotage (1936), The Lady Vanishes (1938), Rebecca (1940), Foreign Correspondent (1940), Suspicion (1941), Saboteur (1942), Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Lifeboat (1944), Spellbound (1945), Notorious (1946), Rope (1948), Strangers on a Train (1951), I Confess (1953), Dial M for Murder (1954), Rear Window (1954), To Catch a Thief (1955), The Trouble with Harry (1955), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956), The Wrong Man (1956), Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959), Marnie (1964), and Torn Curtain (1966).
