Heritage Galleries November Auction Realized

Heritage Galleries' November Auction ended this weekend, resulting in the sixth-highest amount of money ever paid for a movie poster-- the $239,000 fetched for the Flying Down to Rio one sheet. Interestingly, the biggest seller at July's auction was the Flying Down to Rio two sheet and window card.

The next biggest seller in the November auction was the 1925 one sheet of Phantom of the Opera, which garnered a not-too-shabby $155,350, putting it as the #11 seller of all-time. The third biggest seller was a Moon Over Miami three sheet which sold for $47,800. The next biggest selling one sheet was a 1938 re-release of Dracula; the next highest selling original movie poster was a 1926 Faust one sheet which sold for $23,900.

An impressive auction for Heritage (especially considering the state of the economy).
