Original photograph of Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren at Cannes, 1963

N.p. N.p., 1963. Vintage borderless press photograph of director Alfred Hitchcock and actor Tippi Hedren attending Cannes in 1963, with Hitchcock making a bird gesture. With a stamp for photographer Luc Fournol on the verso noting the date 14 Mai 1963.

Loosely based on a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier. Often regarded as Hitchcock's last great film, made all the more terrifying by the lack of motivation or explanation given to the violence. The first film screened at a prestigious invitational showing at Cannes in 1963, attended by both Hitchcock and Hedren.

11 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with light curling and a diagonal crease to the lower left corner.
