HIGHLIGHTS OF THE
A vintage movie poster auction was held on March 9, 2004 by Christie's
in London. According to their website, $214,359 was sold at the auction.
Fellow movie poster collector Vince of the UK attended the auction
and recently posted his report on the Movie Talk Forum. Here are some
of the highlights of his post. All prices are Pounds Sterling - if
you multiply these amounts by 2.3 you'll get a rough idea of the cost
in dollars including premiums.
It was a very packed auction room (150 people?), with the usual suspects
The Outlaw re-release quad, in need of
some love and attention, went for a very respectable £2400. The
Soubie Veronica Lake personality poster went for £550, and was
worth every penny - it was stunning and in excellent condition. The
US noir section fetched average prices. The insert for Deadly
is the Female (the former title of Gun Crazy)
went for £380.
The Italian My Fair Lady by Nistri - the US one-sheet
for the same film, with Peak art, fetched a whopping £800! The
DS Breakfast at Tiffanys one-sheet went for a massive
£11000 plus premiums to a telephone bidder - estimated that to
be around $25,000 at the current exchange rate and including premiums!!
Various lots of UK quads went for high money, Caine and Bond doing extremely
well. The US one-sheet for the Italian Job sold for £1200,
over double its high estimate. The Batman quad fetched a
more-than-healthy £1300. As for the Bond quads, the Dr. No
brought £2600, From Russia With Love £3200.
The rare and eclectic Thunderball advance fetched £2200.
Finally, the bright "Bridge on the River Kwai" sold for £1700.
The Grinsson "Dr No", despite looking in need of some care,
still sold for £700.
Italian posters did only fair trade, the spectacular Dial M for
Murder fetching the best price of £850.
The Japanese poster for the 1933 The Ghoul sold for
£1400. Finally, the Black Narcissus double-crown
eventually sold for £400.
Thanks to Vince for his informative report.
