Pic of the Day – “The Care and Handling of Psycho”

Psycho press book

(Above) The cover to a Psycho (1960) pressbook supplement titled “The Care and Handling of Psycho,” which emphasizes the William Castle-esque gimmick that no one – “not even the manager’s brother” – will be allowed into a screening after the film has begun.

Check out the Psycho supplement in its entirety as well as other vintage pressbooks over at Zombos’ Closet.
