I loved this poster when I first saw it (many many years ago now), and then I discovered that Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder was originally presented in 3D!!! And then the idea behind the design became even better.

Plus, I love the colouring from the bright red to the gold of Grace Kelly's hair and skirt. It's kind of hard to explain why this poster is so good so I'll just leave it.
