A beautiful Italian version of Horror of Dracula poster started out the night at $9,000. By the time bidding ended, the piece sold for a whopping $84,000. The piece features Christopher Lee looking his ghoulish best.

A poster for 1927’s Metropolis, likewise proved a big hit opening at $21,000 before rising high to $66,000.

The weekend’s auction was a blockbuster event, with more than 1,700 bidders visiting the Heritage website vying for the chance to own some of cinema’s most elusive and cherished advertisements.
