Who doesn’t love to read about insane collectibles that none of us could ever possibly own?
The Hollywood Reporter writes about a trove of rare movie posters from the early ’30s discovered in Berwick Pennsylvania that fetched a disgusting $503,000 at an auction conducted by Heritage Auctions.
While most of them aren’t relevant here, the most coveted item in the collection was a rare 1931 one-sheet from Universal Pictures’ Tod Browning-directed Dracula, just one of four known copies in existence, which fetched $143,400, slightly below its initial estimate of $200,000.
The gorgeous painted poster features Béla Lugosi as Dracula and the tagline “The story of the strangest passion the world has ever known!”
