I guess  finally get to start one of these threads.
Not how many unrestored copies of this are left out there, but this is one of them.

Very nice, Crow!  The 1939 Style D art is really cool.  Was this art used for later releases as well?  Nice to see. Okie

I was pleasantly surprised to see the Dracula (R1951) and Wolf Man (R1948) one sheets in nice condition, unbacked and unrestored in Bruce's Halloween auction.  I should have bought them many years ago, though isn't that a story we all share?! Here they are via Bruce's images. Now comes the great poster shuffle to see where they will be framed and hanging up!!!  Best wishes to everyone, Okie

Thanks Simes, Tob, T, Antoine, and Starling! My house is starting to look like Halloween all year.  I sure enjoy a good monster movie poster! Happy hunting, Okie

Thanks for the nice words all (and Redman bite your tongue, this poster should never be backed).

Okie, great pickups and for a very good price, was surprised they didn't end higher but they will look great on your walls.
And no, that Style D art wasn't used for any other release.

All of this stuff is so amazing, it makes it hard to follow up with something more affordable to all.  So I will try.  Got this B1 for John Carpenter's The Fog a couple months ago but never posted it bc it's on my website. 

I still think it's a great poster, so don't crucify me.

Yeah, I'm a 5 minutes walk to the beach and it's been so foggy the past week.  I don't really leave my little coastal town, but I did today, and 10 minutes inland and you get warmth and sunshine.  So you're not wrong. 

It's 10pm, I'm all alone downstairs and I think I hear noise outside.

Heeeeelp!!!

I've been the underbidder on that B1 for The Fog a couple of times now...one day, one day.

Nice score, T.

I have purchased quite a few posters since my last post, but I've been doing a terrible job at keeping my purchase archive updated and sharing on here.
One that I feel I must share though is - I got my very first linenbacked poster. It's the original Thierry hates "French Grande" for Marilyn Monroe's 1954 film "River Of No Return". It's my favorite movie by Marilyn so I just had to get a poster for it. Unfortunately the original US releases are out of my price range for now (not planning on spending $500+ on ANY poster right now) but I managed to get this one at quite a steal compared to what it's going for.
It's beautifully restored - you really can't see any flaws unless you're looking very closely for those original fold lines.
I have to say though...that I'm not really a fan of linenbacking now that I've got my hands on one. I guess I feel it kind of...takes away from the original poster in a way? I mean, to me, it doesn't feel like it's truly an "original" anymore.
Other than that I am very excited about eventually getting it framed and displayed.
It's the oldest poster I own for now. I'm keeping my eye out for posters of some of my favorite classic films - some of which are surprisingly affordable. I probably won't start actively buying again for some time though.

Congratulations, Heather Mason!  I wouldn't worry too much about the linen backing as your River of No Return looks great and is much easier to display now.  Enjoy it!  Okie

Here are some recent pick ups.  Some fun 6-sheets and UK quads, including 2 Hammer titles I was missing.

^ Nice! I like the Invaders 6 sheet, but especially the Womaneater with the monster, the cleavage, the legs, potato head and title font  thumbsup.gif
