The Silence of the Lambs

Beverly Hills, CA: Orion Pictures, 1989. Collection of 8 vintage full-color lobby cards from the 1991 film. This set dated 1989, two years before the film's official release, produced for press advertisement. Of note is a "tasty" image of Hopkins' bloody mouth, and a shot of director Demme surveying his work, with many images not seen in the film.

Based on Thomas Harris' 1988 best selling novel. Clarice Starling (Foster) is a young F.B.I. cadet who is tracking a serial killer (Levine) who skins his victims. In hopes of gaining knowledge of the killer and his whereabouts, she must confide in an incarcerated man, himself a killer and confessed cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins).

One of the greatest films of the 1990s from many aspects, the defining horror film of the decade, and arguably one of the scariest, most nightmarish films ever made. Winner of Academy Awards in the top five categories (only the third film to do so, the other two being "It Happened One Night" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"), the film boosted the careers of Foster, Hopkins, and Levine, with Hopkins reprising his devilish role as Hannibal the Cannibal in Ridley Scott's 2001 sequel, "Hannibal," and Brett Ratner's 2002 prequel, "Red Dragon."

Set in Virginia, shot on location throughout the American Mid-Atlantic region.

11 x 14 inches. Near Fine.
