I collect vintage movie posters, and this morning I found my new favorite triptych, which recently sold for $33,460:

Following Metropolis at $690,000, several classic horror films are the most expensive posters ever sold: http://tinyurl.com/22vpp9y

It's also worth noting Polish film posters are decidedly unique and worth taking a look at: http://tinyurl.com/ya6yhy

Is there a way for me to edit this topic so it's not in all caps?

Edit your original post. Select "Edit," and then you have two choices. Select "Use Full Editor." Then you can retitle the thread.

I appreciate the beauty and expressive qualities of film posters (not to mention the visual reminder of movies that I love). I have 3 film posters decorating my office and waiting room, from movies that contain a turmoil, hope, and sense of wonder befitting my vocation: Troubled Water,Hawaii, Oslo, and Dreams.

FWIW, we have a thread on Polish movie posters here.

We also have threads on "honest" movie posters (x2), Bible-movie posters, movie-blurb posters and the best movie posters of 2008.

"I live to collate, sir." -- Forest Whitaker, ironically, in Good Morning, Vietnam.
"Good. So do I." -- Bruno Kirby, non-ironically, in Good Morning, Vietnam.

Thanks to this post, I have now discovered the Advanced Search feature and will use it accordingly in the future. Consider me collated in this regard.

Oh! The Bride of Frankenstein poster on the first link is fabulous! "I demand a mate!" Great stuff. And the Metropolis poster is rather beautiful. Much better than a lot of the images that have since become associated with the film, I think. Some movie posters are really something else, but then there are so many that go for a shedload simply because of the film.

There are plenty great posters in the MUBI link. Definitely makes me want to see some of these films, many of which I hadn't heard of, so as you rightly say techne - they're doing their job well.

I have always thought that this Polish poster for LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD is nothing short of astonishing.
