Found this blog while trolling for pics. 
Great collection of vintage stuff...I'm sure 'Mildred' won't mind.

I think I have come across this blog at least once before.

Needless to say, if this trully represents his collection it is near unfathomably awesome!

Ain't that the truth, Chris.  Some mighty fine paper, eh?
I figured for those who haven't seen some of these pieces, it was worth posting.
All framed, too.

Yeah, if I had those, I would have them all framed as well.

Even if I had to buy a bigger house.  Of course, if I could buy all those, I could also afford a bigger house.

Thanks for posting the link, as I hadn't seen that.

Amazing collection.  It's incredible that they all look close to brand new since they are all several decades old.  All that crazy/wacky art on posters for a lot of movies from that time is cool.  Must admit though, the mannequins were a little creepy.  Never knew that people collect those.

 laugh1  So you're one of the mannequin collectors, Paul?   :-\  To each his own.  There was a video on the interwebz that I saw a few years ago with some guy who had a couple sex dolls and he was showing them off along with his gun collection, and that was one of the weirdest videos I have ever seen.  I would find a copy of the video and post a link but I really don't need that mental image in my head again.  But yeah, thanks for posting those Paul, the facial expressions combined with the eyes, and in this case the odd placement of the lady's fingers have made me realize that collecting posters isn't too bizarre.  :D
