My Collection



On this page you can view most of my movie poster collection. A few haven't been photographed yet, but most of it is here. I've organised them by type, with a separate page for the posters and lobby cards that I've had framed. Enjoy!

Framed posters


US 1-sheets

Alien - NOW SOLD Blade Runner - NOW SOLD

These two were purchased together in 2005 in a Ridley Scott themed lot at a Bonhams auction, along with the lobby card set for Alien (see further down the page). I don't like either poster enough to have them framed, but for me they're essential posters to have in any collection!

Commando Dune

Ok give me a chance to explain the Commando poster! First of all it was cheap, and secondly I'm a fan of the Arnold golden age (Predator, Commando, Running Man etc..), so how could I resist? Not quite framing material though!

The Dune Advance 1-sheet was bought from an emovieposter.com auction in 2005. I'm not a huge fan of the film, but I love the artwork and so couldn't resist when this nice rolled copy came up for sale. A future framing candidate I think.

Once Upon a Time in America Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid

In my opinion there are very few photographic film posters that are worthy of wall space. But for me the 1-sheet for Once Upon a Time in America is a classic. Combine that with an unbelievably brilliant film (the most under-rated gangster film of all time), then you have a winner. It can be bought very cheaply too, which makes it an essential purchase in my opinion!

This 1-sheet for Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid was the first poster I ever bought (it was a Christmas present to be more precise). The film is my second favourite Peckinpah (behind The Wild Bunch of course), and so this poster still has pride of place on my wall.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - folded Raiders of the Lost Ark - linen backed

This was one of my earlier purchases, back in 2003 if I recall correctly. The Amsel art image makes this poster, and the film is certainly worthy of it.

Wild Bunch - folded Wild Bunch - linen backed

My first big Ebay purchase back in 2004. Was a close call at the time, it took 2 months for the poster to arrive from the US, and during that time the seller disappeared and a lot of people didn't receive their items. I must have been one of the lucky ones. The poster had a few white-tack remnants on the corners, but these were removed perfectly during the linen backing.



UK Quads

Deliverance - folded

I first saw this poster in the CineArt gallery in London when I first started collecting back in 2003. Unfortunately somebody bought it before I could, and I didn't see a single once again until early 2005 when one came up on Ebay. There wasn't much interest and I grabbed it for the opening price of 75. Maybe some people find the design a bit creepy, but it doesn't bother me!

Sting - folded Sting - linen backed

My first Ebay bargain in 2004. Paid 50 for the Quad, and when it arrived it was in near-mint condition. I had it linen backed for framing, but apart from that it remains completely untouched.

Wild Bunch - folded Wild Bunch - linen backed

I'd been after this poster since I first started collecting, and in Summer 2005 I finally found an original UK Quad from the first 1969 release. It was probably the biggest steal of my life, as I bought it off a seller on Ebay for a Buy-it-now price of $299! Considering most places in the UK want around 500 + for such a poster, I thought I did alright. Again, this poster was in excellent condition apart from a couple of tiny nicks (which I think add character anyway!). It was straight-backed (no touch-up) and is now framed nicely!



US 3-sheets

Point Blank - paper backed

I think this is the most expensive poster I've ever bought. The fact that I'm not sure kinda worries me..I bought it last September at a Christies auction. I couldn't make it on the actual day, but just seeing the poster at the viewing was enough for me! The bold design and colours really work a treat on a poster this size!

Wild Bunch - folded Wild Bunch - linen backed

This was my first 3-sheet, and one of my all time favourites. As you might have guessed, I'm a bit of a Wild Bunch nut, so this poster was the top of my most-wanted list right from the start. I finally bought it from a Heritage auction in 2004. As you can see, although the poster was nice and bright, it had a couple of tape stains in the borders and a few other nicks. The job Studio C did in linen backing it was superb. The cost of the linen-backing and shipping was quite high, but worth every penny!



US Half-sheets & Inserts

Apocalypse Now

I bought this at an emovieposter.com auction in 2005. The price was quite low, probably because there's quite a bit of material out there for this film. But the condition was superb and I find the half-sheet size excellent for framing.

The Time Machine

I can't seem to find the unframed photo of this poster, so here's the final framed result instead. I'd been after this artwork for quite a while when I bought it at a Heritage auction in early 2005. The US 1-sheet is usually a lot more expensive and for this artwork I think I prefer the narrower insert style.



US Lobby Cards

Alien pt1 - NOW SOLD Alien pt2 - NOW SOLD

This lobby card set was also part of the Ridley Scott lot that I bought at a Bonhams auction in 2005. They're in excellent condition, but for me there aren't nearly enough interesting cards to justify the cost of framing them.

Commando pt1 Commando pt2

I bought this lobby card set at Christies last year. There was a lot of interest in this one, but I pipped it just below 4 figures! This is the only set known to still be in existence! Ok.. maybe they cost $25 off Ebay.. still cool though.

Wild Bunch pt1 Wild Bunch pt2

Although I've owned a complete set of Wild Bunch cards for a year or two now, they were made up from various sources, including one card that was autographed by Ben Johnson himself, albeit made out to one "Dick Leathers". If you are Dick Leathers, or know of a Dick Leathers, then i'd like to hear from you.

But when a completely mint set of lobby cards turned up on Ebay in late 2005 I knew I had to go for it. The bidding was tough and I went past my own upper limit to get them, but it was definitely worth it. They were so mint when I received them that I wondered whether they were fake. But after comparing them closely to my other cards, and having a couple of experts look at them I was convinced enough to have them framed (pictures of those coming soon!)
