Is that real? Is it a print from the re-release? I NEED ANSWERS. I'll say it's crazy drymounting hard to find a good reproduction of the original Vertigo poster. Thought I had one and they sent me the one that doesn't have the border and just has a single white strip at the bottom of the image.
The one in the frame at the moment is from the official/short run reissue of the film in 1995/1996.
It was for limited engagements, and for the printing of the few they did, they got clearance from the studio and Saul Bass himself to reuse the original plates, which is very neat and never happens.

However, I did have my original Vertigo one sheet in that same frame. After a month or so, I was researching past values for the print on eMovieposter in their auction history. I was a bit shocked to see all the different shades of 'orange' the examples displayed. Found out that the reason is because of such a big portion of the design has that high contrasted color, and ANY sort of sun fades it.

Check it out...goes from dark orange to almost yellow: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/se ... chive.html

So, I panicked, and went back to my framer and had her take it out and replaced it with the reissue which works fine since it is the same poster visually, which is all we were going for. As for the original...it will stay in the vault or go up in the basement. :) The same plans are also for my Dial M for Murder one sheet that I posted in the Hitch thread, since it has that expanse of dark red ink.

BTW, this reissue in the frame can be had for under $300, and there is a 'video release' version (again, same exact plates as original 1958 printings) that is much more common and can be had for under $100. It is indicated by the videocasette tagline at bottom.
