Rare Poster Auction

Heads up, collectors! Especially the well-healed ones…

Christie’s auction house of London is offering this rare and beautiful Swedish poster by Fuchs for Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

Expect this one to fetch a high price. Christie’s estimate is 2,000 to 3,000 British pounds, making it far and away the most expensive among a selection of movie posters on offer, from the impeccable collection of Shinobu Toyoda. Hurry up, sale closes March 5.

Here is the Frankenstein poster auction page. You can click through to see a larger image. And check out the selection of wonderfully jazzy science-fiction titles from the 50’s, including outstanding posters from Not of This Earth, The She Creature, and a set of Belgian posters for all three Creature From The Black Lagoon pictures.

Thanks Matt J.
