Hitchcock Storyboard

This may not look like the most exciting sequence of drawings you've ever seen, but they are an historic rarity, part of the only storyboard by Alfred Hitchcock to remain in private hands. The rest after 1940 are kept in the Hitchcock archives in Beverly Hills. Hitchcock created this storyboard for Stage Fright (1950) and it shows his meticulous pre-production planning with camera angles, closeups of actors and distance shots. The storyboard comes up for auction in Bonhams' Printed Books and Manuscripts sale in London on 7 June, estimated value £20,000 to £30,000.
