It’s rare that such a large, single-owner collection of movie posters comes on the market and this is certainly the first sale of its kind that I can remember taking place in Ireland.
Although the Irish content of this sale only constitutes a small portion of the 340+ Lots on offer, those that are included are amongst highly sought after examples. Amongst those that caught my eye is a fine poster from “Johnny Nobody” (1961), and an even rarer poster from “Odd Man Out” (1947) – not sure that I could live with the strange appearance of James Mason’s hair though! Others of interest include the long forgotten “Professor Tim” (1957) and “Dublin Nightmare” (1958) – this latter movie, long unobtainable, was released on DVD in March 2014. Anyway, there’s other Irish material included in the sale plus a very substantial quantity of high quality International movie posters. Well worth checking out the online catalogue links below.
