Containing Multitudes Since 2004
what a poster - i want it now!polish poster design was amazing back in those days - it deserves a blog actually.
Don't know if this is Polish, it looks more like Czech art to me.. There's more at www.kinoart.net
It is actually Polish, although I when I read Stephan's comments I could have been convinced it could have been Czech. The artist is Roman Cieslewsicz.
Hollywood posters were at their best in the film noir one done in the States, IMHO, but nothing approaches the creativity done by so many other interpretations in other countries. Works of Art, no doubt about it. BCNU

This might be a very nice poster for some other film. To me, a skull with a bullseye suggests violence and horror. It expresses nothing about VERTIGO.
The poster is interesting enough but I agree with somenyguy. It does not capture the unsettling atmospheric qualities that live within every frame of one of Hitchcock's greatest cinematic acheivements. This poster reminds me more of the James Bond spy thriller, Live and Let Die.
