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. Utilizing a deep orange background and a spirograph that calls to mind a descent into madness, Bass nearly puts the audience in the perspective of the man dressed in black at the center of the frame, chasing after a ghastly female figure. The poster promotes the fact that the film is Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece, but it’s plain to see that it is itself a masterwork.
