From an email from Heritage in case anyone is interested:

When you see a vintage movie poster, do you wonder where you'll display it? Can you tell the difference between a US one-sheet and a British quad? If you're passionate and knowledgeable about the wonderful world of film posters, set your sights on a high-profile career in our dynamic and exciting environment as Co-Consignment Director in this fast-paced, fast-growing category. This role would be responsible for researching and helping build the lineup of vintage posters for upcoming auction catalogs and weekly auctions.

We seek candidates with deep knowledge of movie posters (and posters in general), including international posters. Apply online today at HA.com, or send us your resume to Jobs @ ha.com


I added spaces to the email address to try and stop it being harvested by bots. It sounds like a fun job for a passionate movie poster aficionado, I'd love to go to work and do something like that!

Do you have to move to Texas?  Not that Im at all interested, but that would kill it on the spot for me.

Otherwise, yeah, it sounds like a great opportunity.

Thanks for sharing, Tob.

I'm certainly not planning to leave Heritage anytime soon! I'm looking to expand the division and would like to find energetic poster fanatics. I think it would be a good fit for an honest, reliable, and knowledgeable collector!

Yes, but then you would go from selling the most posters for the least money to less posters for the most money - I can't imagine that making you happy.

Thanks for sharing this great video. Love the stone lithos for their detail and colour. I see lots of linen backed posters, which I don't mind. There's an unbacked 3 sheet in the last seconds of the video dropped into the frame. There's so many frames on the walls, I'm reminded of a self declared Elite Poster Collector that was on this forum long ago.

Yes, except this is an actual elite collection.
Although I think most educated collectors prefer unbacked posters when available, sometimes the only known copies of a particular title are backed, so what are you gonna do?

elite

Everyone's collection is elite to them.  That is sort of how collections work.  No one collects garbage to claim what a giant pile of turds they have.  If two collectors have similar interest, often their collections are elite to each other.  You could call a collector of 40s Italian pieces elite.  It may be elite to his insurance company and to fellow collectors of 40s paper or Italian paper, but not really elite to anyone else.  So, please define "elite" in your context above.  Is there a difference between "actual elite" and "perceived elite"?

Elite value or value per piece?
Elite rareness?
Elite cinemagraphic importance?

I think Mel was once asked what defined "elite" or "5 star", etc when he used to use those terms to describe collectors, collections, and specific pieces.  I do not recall whether there was ever an answer that anyone accepted............

I really enjoyed that video, thanks for sharing Crowzilla. Well presented, informative and full of amazing paper! The posters look so much better in-hand on that video than they do on a static photo on an auction site. I love the idea of tracking down old cinema managers and distributors and going door to door on a treasure hunt - I wonder how many unseen collections are out there that will one day surface?

I like his thoughts on collecting posters somehow feels like owning a piece of the film - although I collect cheap modern posters that sometimes have never seen a cinema, I feel the same way.

That was the best video introduction to our hobby I have ever seen - fantastic reference material and an eloquent host.

I was lucky enough to meet Gaspar No earlier in the week. I should have realised he was a movie poster collector from the thoughtful way he wrote his message and name on my Love poster, mirroring the "dripping" of the title.

Pretty sure I was one of the ones who used to poke at Mel and his elite and 5-star terms, which is why I tongue-in-cheek said this is an actual elite collection.
As someone who has a lot of non-elite posters, I would suggest the definition is whatever you want it to be. Like Justice Stewart would say - I know it when I see it.

I never understood the notion of elite collector.  Elite athlete, I get, because it defines excellence.  But what is excellent about collecting?  What is excellent about buying and adding to a collection?  What is excellent about the ability to spend more money than someone else?  People collect and love what they collect and thats the extent of it in my view.
