FILM POSTER AUCTION UPDATE

Further to my post  of 25/8/17 about the 1930s/40s film posters found under carpets in the former home of a cinema manager, the auction of the posters took place today in Cardiff.

It was interesting to watch the bidding live.

The 1939 STAGE COACH poster sold for £31,000.

No other poster came any where near that sale.

SHERLOCK HOLMES sold for £13,000.

The BLACK FRIDAY poster went for £1000.

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT  – £900.

But most posters sold for prices between £60 and £500.

LITTLE OLD NEW YORK – £350.

RETURN OF FRANK JAMES – £250

ALGIERS – £550

Many sales were through Internet bidding.
