Lot 81
An Alfred Hitchcock photographic archive from Notorious

Sold for US$ 9,562 inc. premium
An Alfred Hitchcock photographic archive from Notorious
RKO, 1946. Comprising approximately 200 silver gelatin photographs, the majority of which are 8 x 10 in. (10 of which are set stills); five 4 x 5 in. photos; a Movie Story magazine, Sept. 1945, with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman on the cover; and a Radio City Music Hall "Showplace" program. A large number of the photos in this lot are doubleweight and linen-backed keybook stills, and many have informational snipes and stamps on the reverse. Photographers represented and/or attributed to are Gaston Longet and Ernest Bachrach. This incredible archive features photos of Hitchcock directing, behind-the-scenes filming and on-the-set candids, scene stills, portraits of the cast members including Grant, Bergman, Claude Rains, Ivan Triesault, Louis Calhern, and others, and much more. Cary Grant canoodling intimately with Ingrid Bergman while he half-heartedly makes a phone call is one of the most sensual scenes in any Alfred Hitchcock-directed film. Notorious is abundant in romance and suspense, and the cast is complete with the inimitable Claude Rains as Bergman's husband. The famous camera shot swooping from the ceiling to a small key in Bergman's hand is an example of Hitchcock's filmmaking genius.
Photos: 8 x 10 in. and smaller; magazine: 8.5 x 11 in.
