ALFRED HITCHCOCK SIGNED LETTER
A letter from Alfred Hitchcock signed in black fountain pen to Anthony Emerzian written on Hitchcock's own stationary, matted and framed. The cryptic letter reads in part: "Your visit to Harrod's has brought forth a most grateful gift for which we thank you." Also present in display are two publicity photos of Hitchcock from Psycho (Shamley) and The Birds (Universal). The same year Hitchcock wrote this letter marked the release of his final film, Family Plot (Universal).
