Alfred Hitchcock – Opening Day

by Marty Melville Oct 07, 2017

Marty Melville, an itinerant collector of arcane movie ephemera, wandered the wilderness of the internet lo these many years till one day he vanished with little but a geiger counter and an empty bottle of Blatz to mark his exit. Now he’s back among friends at Trailers From Hell. As you’ll see, all he needs is a good ad mat and he’ll be a happy spelunker. We hope you enjoy the humble results of his pursuits.
