    Description

    (35) 16x20 stills from Alfred Hitchcock's The Manxman. His last silent movie. (British International Pictures, 1929) Special archival collection of (35) 16 x 20 in. silver-bromide double-weight matte master-prints for The Manxman, which were custom printed for director Alfred Hitchcock at the time of its release, at the very end of the silent-era (see description of Hitchcock's The Mountain Eagle for the special and unique nature of these archival stills). The discovery of this collection now represents virtually the entire body of known existing first-generation material for one of Hitchcock's most significant early works, and its ultimate value to film historians (and of course collectors) is impossible to accurately gauge or limit. Prints are virtually unhandled save for a few with tiny edge tears and one (atmospheric set shot) with a crease and repaired tear; faint silvering from age, though entire collection was clearly properly stored from the time of its creation. Overall very fine.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
