Dark Knight (DS advance) Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Dark Knight (DS advance) 2008 US 1 sht - 27"X40" Near Mint £325
Notes: For many, The Dark Knight is the best of the Batman movies with some genuine darkness in the characterisation and storyline. Heath Ledger died shortly afterwards and won a posthumous Oscar for his role as the Joker. This fact, the stunning image and the fact that the 'why so serious?' poster was withdrawn shortly after the film was released (in favour of one featuring Batman), make this design particularly sought after. This rarity has created a market for bootleg versions, though, and there are far more fakes than genuine posters around. This item is guaranteed to be an original, studio issued, double-sided poster intended for cinema use, rolled as issued.

1948 London Games - XIV Olympiad Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
1948 London Games - XIV Olympiad 1948 UK 1 sht - 27"X40" Good on linen £495
Notes: 1948 poster advertising the British made film of the London Olympic games featuring the famous Rank 'Gong Man' striking the Olympic flag - a truly iconic image. The XIV Olympiad was the first Olympics for 12 years due to the second world war - the previous games having been held in Berlin in 1936 and was dubbed the austerity Olympics because of the extensive rationing. Prior to the widespread use of TV, this would have been the only way that the majority of the country saw the Olympic Games. N.B. This is very rare indeed compared to the much smaller official 1948 Olympic posters (the largest of which was just 20" x 30" compared to the 27" x 40" for this poster) of which 100,000 were printed as souvenirs and now sell for up to £5,000. Less than 3,000 of this poster were printed, none were sold to the public and almost all would have been routinely recycled for pulp immediately so there are probably less than 10 surviving examples in the world today. A fascinating piece of social as well as Olympic history. There are no records of any coming to a public auction in the last 20 years. I have seen two in 25 years of collecting. First release poster from 1948, linen backed with retouching to borders.

Notes: The first of the movie superheroes. Classic Saturday morning cinema serial based on the character in WHIZ COMICS Magazine about the boy who becomes a superhero when he says "Shazam" and he fights a mysterious masked villain called The Scorpion. Republic Pictures had tried to make a deal with DC Comics to make serials of Superman and Batman in 1940, but were turned down and instead made a deal with Whiz Comics in 1941. This was actually the very first of the many movies based on costumed super heroes, predating Superman and Batman by two years. Because it was released at the start of America's involvement in World War II, and there were paper drives over the next few years, original 1941 movie paper on this title is EXTREMELY rare. Linen backed in excellent condition with retouching to borders.
