Record Setting Movie Poster Sale
An original Metropolis movie poster for Fritz Lang’s classic 1927 science fiction film has sold for a world record price of $690,000. A US collector bought the art deco sepia colored poster designed by graphic artist Heinz Schulz-Neudamm — one of only four known copies — from London’s Reel Poster Gallery.
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.
