Buy classic movie postersBe the first to comment 30 October 2012
While it’s usually the actors, directors and CGI that get all the plaudits for movie making, the promotional posters that accompany most releases are often works of art themselves: and they look pretty nice hanging from living room or bedroom walls. Collecting retro version of film promotional posters has become popular online, as has finding foreign variants of classics, such as the fantastic Hong Kong poster for the original Star Wars movie.
And movie posters are big business. In June of this year a rare poster from the 1927 silent classic Metropolis was sold for around Dhs3,000,000. Even Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage made Dhs1,141,285 on his original print of the 1931 classic Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi, when he sold off his collection in 2009. Thankfully, you don’t have to spend an absolute fortune if you want to buy classic movie artwork, and plenty of reprints are available online for a fraction of the price.
Everyone loves this classic from 1942, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman (set in Africa during the early days of WWII). This print can be bought at Movie Poster Exchange and is an original. But it’ll cost you a cool Dhs36,000 if you want to hang it on your wall.
