MetropolisPrice: £1,750 | Nominal size: UK programme (7.25" x 9.75") | Grade: Fine/Near Mint | Year: 1927
Note: Anything from the first release of Metropolis is very rare indeed but this is only part of the reason that the posters command such high prices (a german poster sold for $690,000). Another reason is the fact that this is one of the most influential and important films in the history of the motion picture industry. Finally, the artwork is simply stunning. In simple terms, this film changed everything. This is a super rare 32 page film program from the UK Premiere at London's Marble Arch Pavilion on March 21st 1927. It is full of information related to the film including actor interviews, special effects secrets and a budget breakdown. This is the quintessential insider's guide to the film directly from UFA. This has survived very well with no fading of the colours on the cover and no damage to any of the inside pages and only very light spine wear. There is a small amount of foxing (tiny rust coloured spots) on the back cover but it's otherwise in superb condition.
