OBSESSION 1sh Movie Poster

  • 1976
  • 27 x 41 inches ~ (68 x 104 cm)
  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $210 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Obsession, the 1976 Brian De Palma horror mystery is-she-or-isn't-she thriller ("Story by Brian de Palma & Paul Schrader"; about a man whose life is shattered when his wife and daughter are killed during a kidnapping, but then ten years later, he meets a woman who is an exact duplicate of his wife) starring Cliff Robertson, Genevieve Bujold, John Lithgow (in his second movie role!), Sylvia Kuumba Williams, Wanda Blackman, and J. Patrick McNamara. Note that this movie has always been controversial, because while all agree it is an excellent movie, some see it as an homage to Alfred Hitchcock, while others call it a "rip-off". Certainly, there are major similarities between this movie and Vertigo, and De Palma hired Bernard Hermann to do the musical score (and Hermann did the classic Hitchcock score for Psycho, and worked on Vertigo!), but the two movies are far from the same, and each person must view them both and judge for themselves how they feel about them. It is likely that this controversy has kept this movie from being as highly acclaimed as many feel it should be!
