2010 March Signature Movie Poster Auction

We are pleased to present a tremendous selection of rare horror and science fiction posters from the collection of Kirk Hammett, guitarist for the world-renowned heavy metal band, Metallica. Included are a wonderful insert from Metropolis, a beautiful Swedish oversized poster from King Kong, and a very rare lobby card from London after Midnight featuring Chaney in make-up as the vampire! These are included with a number of other fine examples from these genres. Some of the other treats awaiting you include a fabulous selection of material from early and later Alfred Hitchcock films. These include a gorgeous three sheet to the classic thriller The 39 Steps, wonderful examples of one sheets to both A Woman Alone (Sabotage) and Secret Agent as well as title cards and lobbies from the latter two films. Also awaiting you in this catalog are beautiful posters from such classics as Mae West’s She Done Him Wrong, W.C. Field’s You’re Telling Me and Astaire and Rogers in Shall We Dance. There is a magnificent 24 sheet poster to the 1929 classic adaptation of Jules Verne’s novel of the same name, Mysterious Island, and an amazing reissue three sheet to the Joan Crawford star-making role of Sadie Thompson in Rain. If it is the silent screen and the images from that era that interest you do not miss the one sheet to Rudolph Valentino’s The Sainted Devil, or the only known one sheet to the classic Lonesome by director Paul Fejos. Also included are a one sheet to comedian Harold Lloyd’s first feature film, Sailor-Made Man and a fabulous six sheet to Charlie Chaplin’s Sunnyside.
