   Heritage Auctions in Dallas have obtained over 35 movie posters from the Pre-Code Era of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The theatre one-sheets were found in an attic in Pennsylvania last Fall. Available on March 23rd, these 1930s artifacts are expected to net a quarter-of-a-million dollars.


  The rare original collection have undergone restoration; but these cinematic promotional pieces have not been replicated in many decades, and are considered quite valuable. Among the highlights: The Front Page, Little Caesar, Dracula, The Public Enemy, The Thin Man, Cimarron, Twentieth Century, My Man GodfreyHoliday, and the 1931 version of The Maltese Falcon.


    This valuable stack of Hollywood history was inside a house whose contents were being liquidated as part of an estate sale. Nationwide collectors are licking their chops to obtain portions of this find.

Until next time.                                 “never forget”
