While its status as the greatest Hitchcock film is somewhat debatable, Saul Bass’ striking poster for Vertigo is, without a doubt, the greatest Hitchcock poster. Bass, who also designed many of Hitchcock’s title sequences, was known for his offbeat minimalism in his designs, and the Vertigo poster is no exception.
If the GCIU logo was used on studio-printed posters for the video releases of these movies, then inherently these posters are still originals — just not original theatrical posters. Conclusion.
