That's beautiful, congrats! What a poster.

It looks like you have Fistful in your avatar, so is For a Few Dollars More next? Or do you already have that?

You read my mind!! I have also a 40x60 framed GOod bad and Ugly ...Need to get the 3 sheet For a Few DOllars more in a few weeks . Not sure if I will get the Australian or US version . I like the "not for kids" logo on the Australian , so might go that route ....Will look great all three together . Sue used to be my local framer , but she moved and now its not that easy to frame these big ones at a reasonable cost . But it will happen soon and post here on the great poster forum .. thumbsup.gif

Very nice frames and all, K.  Them 40x60s are stunning on display.

Nice pickups, Morphine.  Are they from a local store, auction, private sale?

Local private sales. I've been purchasing from her over the past two years or so. She's basically been selling  off her late husband's collection.

Wow, some really good stuff to finish the month.

I agree, the 40x60s are great.  I love the format, my favorite among US styles.  I only wish I had collected them when they were cheaper.

Bah!

Yeah they've always been more expensive but as with everything have increased in price.  They're much more rare than one sheets and most other formats so some folks list them at super high prices.  Cinemasterpieces just sold one for Flashdance (1983) for $795.  :o

Hilarious!  I bought one from him (on Ebay) in 2021 for $1.25.  Yes, one dollar and twenty five cents hahaha

Nice markup!!

Wow.  That was probably a consignment.  His $0.99 starting price eBay auctions don't achieve the Cinemaster prices.  Nice win for you, though.

Koisokok: Nice going big on Good, Bad, and Ugly! I like these big posters.  Okie

Morphine: Congratulations on buying some cool posters locally!  I've always liked the Somewhere in Time image and movie.  In the very early 1980s, I and a couple of friends got to spend some time with Christopher Reeve one day on the street in New York City. Reeve was there for the protests/rally against what was ultimately the demolition of the old Helen Hayes Theatre.  Reeve was very kind to us teenagers all those years ago for letting us hang out with him.

That's a nice story, thanks for sharing Okie.  Somewhere in Time is a lovely movie, I haven't seen it in over 30 years, maybe time to revisit it.

I love that movie.  It has certainly aged a little, a little slow at times, but Teresa Wright as the older version of Jane Seymour and the absolutely breathtaking John Barry score are enough for repeat viewings.
