"These posters were purchased in the '90s from the estate of a theater proprietor,"
The posters span four decades, from the 1960s to the 1990s. They include all genres, from action/adventure to musicals to horror, so there is something for just about anyone who's ever been a fan of the movies or is a collector of movie posters. The collection includes inserts, door panels, one- and three-sheet posters and a Rolling Stones theater display.
Highlights will include style A and B one-sheet posters for Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). The style B example is 27 inches by 41 inches and features artwork by Robert McCall. A one-sheet poster of the same size (standard for a one-sheet) for JAWS (Universal, 1975), directed by Steven Spielberg, with Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, is visually arresting, with the iconic shark graphic.
Elvis fans rejoice! The King will appear multiple times in the auction, including a three-sheet poster (41 inches by 79 inches) for the film Spinout (MGM, 1966), co-starring Shelley Fabares of The Donna Reed Show fame, in two panels as originally produced; and a 14 inch by 36 inch insert for Viva Las Vegas (MGM, 1964), co-starring Ann-Margret, with color as vibrant as the movie itself, which paired two the biggest stars of the time.
