At this point I'd say 3 different versions (though one of them staged) of Beauty and the Beast have a special place in my heart for various reasons.

The Birds (1963)

My copy doesn't have that unsightly wrinkle. But it has a somewhat unsightly and very inexpensive frame.

This one probably gets swapped out for something else if my mother ever comes to visit.

This Mondo print instantly became my girlfriend's favorite. It's way up there on my list too.

The one that started it all. I couldn't help but throw down to have it custom matted and framed. "Mr. T" did a breath-taking job with it.

Drive (2011)

A Ken Taylor hand-numbered original, originally designed for a special screening at the Alamo Drafthouse, Austin, Texas. It lives with me, but it's not mine, technically.

Metropolis (1927)


18x24

Another of 6 prints that I've opted to have custom framed (along with Bride of Frankenstein, Casablanca, Drive, Hugo, and Notorious), though that wasn't originally the intention. I had no idea what a beauty this thing would be until it arrived in the mail and I got it in my hands. Go find the 18x24, heavy-weight, matte finish print. It's priced insanely cheap. One absolute hell of a bargain!

An oddly sized 13x28 fella that was a bitch and a half to find a frame for.

Notorious (1946)


Had my eye on this one for what feels like forever. Notorious is my favorite Hitchcock film and on many days I'd call it my all time favorite film, period. The price dropped and I pounced. Custom matted and framed.



Newest acquisition, this is just an 11x17.

Far from my favorite Hitchcock film, but I dig this poster quite a bit. And I needed Grace Kelly represented in color somewhere in my apartment.

In June of 2011 I took a short vacation to Charleston, South Carolina. While walking around downtown I wandered into a print shop and it wasn't 10 minutes later that I ran across one of the most beautiful movie posters I'd ever seen. It was a Japanese print for Casablanca and I simply had to have it. While most of the prints in the shop included a reference number and price, this one did not. I turned to my girlfriend and told her, "I would pay $___.00 for this, right now, no question." Fingers crossed, I asked the woman how much it was selling for. Her answer: exactly five dollars less than what I'd said I'd happily spend.

It was meant to be.

And thus began what has become a somewhat dangerous hobby, one that has taken over a sizable chunk of our apartment and, yes, has a put a bit of a dent in my checking account over the past few months. (Though the Casablanca print remains the most pricey of the lot in a collection of mostly relatively inexpensive mass-produced (no matter how neat-looking) reproductions. A good many of these are easily found on Amazon or ebay and won't put much of a strain on your wallet. The Mondo series posters are decidedly more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Some very talented artists over there, and they release new prints all the time! A couple others were purchased on the cheap at a local video store, and 3 of the 4 B & W stills were happened upon by chance at an antique barn.

I'm pretty sure that I've reached a point where I'm no longer actively shopping for any more of these damn things, lord help me.

Nice collection! As much as I love the Drafthouse posters I've never been able to allow myself to part with the money for one of them. They always seem to be far more than I'm willing to spend.

When I was a kid I had a dozen or so still posters (on photo quality paper no less) from Return of the Jedi that my dad brought home for us. I wish he'd hid them away until we were grown up, as they accumulated tack holes, torn corners, & other damages over the years to the point of no longer being worthy of display. Say, that gives me a list idea....

Nice list! I have several that I was given by small movie rental places. Cool hobby, but like you said, it can get a little pricey, especially when you want them framed.

Expensive hobby, plus you need space to put them all up. I have around 20 mass-produced, but serial-numbered ones.

Your collection's cool.
