An Original 41 X 81 Three Sheet Poster from the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock Horror/Thriller film “The Birds” starring Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor. “The Birds” was Hitchcock’s first picture with Universal Studios and tells the story of ordinary birds wreaking havoc on a small Northern California community. There were hundreds of live birds trained for usage in the film while mechanical crows, ravens and gulls were used in others. The film is loosely based on a series of short stories written by Daphne du Mauier. In 2001, nearly forty years after the film’s release, Du Maurier’s son reported that he and his wife’s cottage in Cornwall, England were being harassed by seagulls! Offered here is the scarcer, oversized Original Three Sheet poster in flawless Near Mint condition. Issued to theaters for the films 1963 theatrical campaign this particular example was clearly set aside and never used as the colors and registration look as perfect as the day it was printed. You won’t find a nicer example. Folded. Near Mint.
