Adam Simpson Designs Creative 'Rear Window' Poster Art for Mondo
In deadly danger...because they saw too much! Another new poster for one of Hitchcock's classics. Mondo has debuted their poster art for Rear Window, Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 thriller classic starring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. The art is designed by artist Adam Simpson, and features a creative design of the apartment block, with the various tenants that Stewart spies on hidden within. It's a very sleek design, although a bit contemporary and certainly different from the film's real marketing. It's also reminiscent of the recent Home Alone poster, also designed by Adam Simpson. You can see the poster and alternate below.
Here's the new Mondo poster for Hitchcock's Rear Window. 24"x36" screen print, on sale on January 23rd.
Both of these will be sold by Mondo Tees. $45 for the original design (top), $65 for the alternate (bottom).
Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window was first released in 1954 by Paramount Pictures, and later re-released in 1968. After breaking his leg photographing a racetrack accident, professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jefferies (Stewart) is confined to his Greenwich Village apartment, using a wheelchair while he recuperates. His rear window looks out onto a small courtyard and several other apartments. While watching from his window, he becomes convinced one of the residents has committed murder. The film received four Academy Award nominations: Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography & Best Sound, but didn't win any.
