Is that a Franky daybill?  I thought it was an insert...

I'm in love with the French 2p.  Go big or go home.

That French Frankenstein was in Robert Florey's collection. I met with his widow, and she explained that he wanted one poster each from all his movies, and he had a U.S. poster on ALL except Frankenstein, because Laemmle had cheated him terribly, promising him to let him direct him he gave Laemmle the script, but once he did, Laemmle took him off of it, and to add insult to injury did not credit him for his script!

But he somehow DID get credit on the French poster, which was why Florey had it in his collection! Interestingly, he was a major collector of other types of items, like swords, but the only posters he had were the one each from his movies.

I thought the Frankenstein 6-Sheet was the pinnacle of our hobby, that is until I picked this book up...The 3-Sheet for The Mummy is...SPECTACULAR.  Wowza!  That is art.

Don't let it bring you down Charlie.
You can always learn playing the guitar, form a metal band, do some gigs until you achieve playing before metallica in a concert, befriend Kirk, make him invite you to his house, kick the crap out of him and while he's unconscious grab all you can and run.

That's crazy talk Matias... Quit living in a dream world!  All Charlie needs to do is to take his restoration hobby pro.  Lets say he makes $50 per poster after expenses and time. If he can complete one poster per day and doesn't take any days off for weekends or vacations, in 41 short years he'll have saved up enough to buy Todd F's Dracula on eBay!

NOT HELPING!  You forgot inflation, making it a statistical improbability... as I would have to make $61 a day (plus 1.03 annually) just to keep up with it, the inflation alone.  So I would have to make $111/day + inflation... :'(  

Based on an annual 3% inflation rate at $50/day I will still be $1.76 million short... since the poster will most likely be worth $2.5 million in 2053...

Fair enough. If we want to go the restoration route, it's even easier. Become pro, get Kirk's posters for linenbacking. Do some fine reproductions glued to real vintage paper. Keep originals. Return the fakes to Kirk. Just make sure you don't get caught, Haggard style  ;)

You won't be disappointed Matt.  The Posters are all photographed beautifully.  And there is a great story (almost like 2 pages long) on how he ended up picking up one of the Styles of The Mummy poster, the only one known to exist.  Unfortunately it was laminated, but still...

So who has the greatest horror memorabilia collection?  Hammett says he has the "second" greatest collection.

Rob Zombie has a nice collection as well.

Sean tracks where the big moves go pretty well.
