‘The Invisible Man’ and ‘Horror of Dracula’ Draw Massive Bids At Heritage Auctions’ Movie Posters Event

As many horror fans and collectors know, original horror posters can be quite elusive and command some serious cash on the secondary market. This years Heritage Auctions’ Movie Posters Event, which was held from July 25th-July 26th was no exception.

A rarely seen 27”X41” one sheet of 1933’s The Invisible Man, which features artwork by Gene Schwalm, took in $228,000 to help lead the weekend’s sales past the $2.3 million mark.

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.

“The sale was very active,” said Grey Smith, Heritage Auctions’ Director of Vintage Posters. “A large number of bidders participated, there were strong results overall – and some records set.”
