thanks for the bids Mel. I'll be happy when HA sends my check......

 ;)

Good for you Richie. I missed this part of the auction but somebody else came from way behind just a few dollars lower than my top bid.

Mel, have you ever tried to use the "Make an Offer" feature through Heritage? I know several people who have been able to pick up pieces they wanted that way.

No, I think I opted out of receiving offers and the prices offered by other are much higher than auction prices.

I will be interested to hear your opinion of the piece once you have it in hand. It's good that the overall fading doesn't bother you, but the restoration/recreation to Lake's face (as you say, the centerpiece of the poster) is far too much paint for my taste - especially around the eyes and details of her hair. Compare to this prior Heritage sale to see what I'm talking about. Guess this is why T avoids the restored stuff.



I'd be curious to know if HA received the HS already in that restored condition or if it was sent out by them to be worked on, before the Sig auction?

Lake's look around her left eye area appeared a little different to me, too (I hadn't read the auction descrip, so didnt know it had been retouched/restored and thought that was how it was printed), and now, when comparing to the unrestored copy, I see what you are referring to, Sean.

Thank you Jeff and Mel!

Mel, I agree that the 3S for Dracula's Daughter is very nice, I almost bid on the copy that you linked which was sold by HA a few years back but refrained from doing so because it was on linen.  At that time, I refused to buy any linen-backed posters.  I have since relaxed my policy a bit when it comes to larger posters (3S, 6S, French 47X63 and Italian 4F) if a folded copy is hard to get.  I still like the OS best for that title, I love how simple and minimalist the design is.  But I'm happy to get my hands on this HS for now.

I just received this Dracula's Daughter HS from the first release of 1936, unrestored and in very good condition.  I've been looking for the OS for some time, so in the meantime this poster will have to do.  I always loved how moody and atmospheric those haunted eyes are...

A beauty for sure! Congrats, Benjamin!

I just noticed that the last time HA sold the TGFH half that it was someone who accepted offers. Perhaps there was a price in between the $597 it sold for last time and the price you paid that could have shaken it free.

Nice piece - and all the items that sold in the Haggard auction went for reasonable prices (I was kicking myself later in the day when I realized I had totally forgotten about the auction).
The Dracula's Daughter 1-sheet is a real rarity. The half sheets, inserts, and lobbies all appear fairly regularly but the 1-sheet just doesn't turn up for sale. I don't believe there are more than five copies known, while I've had that many copies of the TC alone in the last 20 years, for example.

Got these today.










Would be nice if I can get all the pictures to load, but photobucket likes to make me wait 29 minutes to load the damn screen. let alone their 18 ads they need to post.

Yeah, completely ridiculous.  I have a couple of those that I paid $20 for when the movie came out.  Having said that, never forget that $400 to some is like $4 to others.  There are a few people at Emovieposter who repeatedly overspend on lesser condition posters that can be found for much less in much better condition.  I don't get it, but then I remind myself that if I was a billionaire, I wouldn't care either.

Overspenders are everywhere.

And dealers/auction houses LOVE those types....

You might care about the condition, irrespective of the cost.  I would.  I do.  (I am not a billionaire)

I had this arrive a few days ago.

A French affiche, measuring 23.5" x 31.5" for the film, They All Kissed the Bride (1942), with Joan Crawford, Melvyn Douglas and Billie Burke. This poster is from the first French release in 1945.

The poster art was done by Boris Grinsson.

Signed and dated (45) in the upper right corner.

Ah, Boris.

Yes.

Thanks, gents.

Grinsson is one of my favorite French artists and to have one of his from the mid 1940's is exciting.
