Various artwork for Francois Truffaut’s directorial debut, 1959’s semi-autobiographical The 400 Blows. Love the English-language poster, which makes the film look like a Blackboard Jungle-esque juvenile delinquent B-movie.
(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.
