    Metropolis is a terrific film, and its poster is just as impressive. Art deco and SF should never be parted.

    WoW, this is a great poster for a great movie but 690,000? Hefty sum.

    That is indeed an impressive price.

    Wow, and the question for me is: assuming i had that kind of cash, whoul i have paid that much for it? Being a HUGE “Metropolis” fan, i would probably have done so.

    Sad to say. Heh.
