For cover art it would be hard to improve on this...



I'm more than a little surprised that Paramount isn't releasing it themselves but not at all surprised that Criterion jumped on it.

It's a perfect fit for them. It'll sell like crazy, it's an influential and important classic and they love Polanski.

As a kid seeing this in the 70s, this movie freaked me out.

My favorite horror film. Will be one of the best Criterion titles this year. I can't wait. My guess is early October.
The Criterion Collection (or simply Criterion) is an American video-distribution company which specializes in licensing "important classic and contemporary films" and selling them to film aficionados.

Correct me if i'm wrong,but Criterion doesn't use original poster art that much these days, so this probably won't be an exception.

I turned six the summer this came out and distinctly remember seeing it at a drive-in. It definitely made an impression* because I badgered my grandfather into buying the paperback for me at a thrift store when I was ten or so.

It's one of my absolute favorite films and has been in the top five of my BD wishlist as long as I've had one. I would have been very happy with a Paramount release (they did a fine job with Chinatown) but seeing that newsletting clue in my inbox was definitely a welcome surprise.

* the only image to clearly stick with me from that first viewing was the
[Show spoiler]suicide. Even by kid standards it wasn't really overly graphic but I thought the impact had popped one of her eyes out. I must have always sort of reflexively glanced away during that scene because it was thirty years before I realized it was the charm laying (lying?) next to her

They used the Saul Bass title work for their Anatomy of a Murder cover so it's hard to say. You also never know what restrictions/requirements Paramount might have put in place regarding the cover.

And if they don't use it for the cover I hope they'll at least use it for the menu backdrop.

Wrong...it's about someone who doesn't care about spoiling a movie for everyone else who hasn't seen it yet.
