Montblanc Limited Edition Alfred Hitchcock Fountain Pen
Alfred Hitchcock is considered by many to be one of the most influential filmmakers of all time and a true cultural icon. Honoring his outstanding contribution to the art of filmmaking, Montblanc presents a spine-chilling Tribute to the Master of Suspense - the electrifying Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock Limited Edition.
Alfred Hitchcock - the inventor of the thriller genre - knew that audiences love to ride a rollercoaster of fear and developed masterful cinematic techniques for stimulating that emotional response. By frightening a broad public through technical innovation and unconventional storytelling, Hitchcock became the inventor of the psychological thriller genre. Through world famous horror classics such as "Psycho" and "Vertigo", he brought cinema to a new level of artistry. Inspired by the most shocking Hitchcock film scenes, Montblanc's Limited Edition Alfred Hitchcock brings to life his genius and tells the story of his extraordinary contribution to the art of filmmaking.
Many of Alfred Hitchcock's scenes remain the most memorable in movie history - just remember the pivotal scene in Hitchcock's "Vertigo" (1958), when the character races frantically up the stairs of a tower and experiences a crippling bout of vertigo - looking down stairs. This famous cinematographic innovation known as the "Vertigo Effect" of the dizzyingly dark staircase influences the overall design of the pioneering Alfred Hitchcock Limited Edition. In the spiraling, black lacquer finish one remembers the staircase and the special effect that Hitchcock invented.
The film "Psycho" (1960) on the other hand provides the inspiration for a key design element in the knife-shaped clip, whose sinister gleam brings the famous shower scene instantly to mind. The notes engraved on the 925 sterling silver cap and barrel fittings refer to the original "Psycho" film reel while the cone features 53 hatch marks symbolizing the 53 movies that Hitchcock directed during his impressive career spanning almost six decades. Hitchcock's self-portrait sketch, a caricature of his profile, adorns the rhodium-plated 18 K gold nib. Limited to 3,000 pieces.
