Universal City: Universal Pictures, 1963. Vintage borderless reference photograph from the 1963 film, showing director Alfred Hitchcock talking with electronic musician Oskar Sala, who composed the film's iconic soundtrack. Printed mimeo snipe in French affixed to the verso.

Hitchcock's last great film, a grim psychological study, made all the more terrifying by the lack of motivation assigned to its violence.

Shot in various locations throughout California, including Bodega Bay, Bloomfield, Valley Ford, the Venice Canals, and Union Square in San Francisco.

7.5 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus, lightly edgeworn.

National Film Registry. Clover, Men, Women, and Chainsaws. Godard, Histoire(s) du cinema.
