Heritage Galleries July Auction Realized

Heritage Galleries' July Auction ended this weekend. The two items that fetched the highest prices were from the first Astaire-Rogers film Flying Down to Rio (a two sheet poster and a window card)— they went for $26,290 each.

The third highest price realized— and the highest for a one-sheet— went to Creature from the Black Lagoon, which went for $25,095.

Next on the one-sheets was This Gun For Hire ($22,705).

Of the ones that caught my eye (and which I posted in my previous blog entry), that terrific Salome poster went for $10,157.50; Vertigo (VF- quality) went for $4,182.50; Invasion of the Body Snatchers (VF- quality) for just $1,553.50. The Flash Gordon poster is now on Heritage's post-auction bidding.

Here is Learn About Movie Posters compilation of top sellers of all-time.
