Here are a couple more new acquisitions, The Mummy's Curse OS (1944), and The Indestructible Man 3S (1956).

With The Mummy's Curse, I now have first release paper on all 6 classic Universal monsters franchises (Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Wolfman and the Creature from the Black Lagoon).  Along with the RKO Val Lewton cycle and Hammer films, this is one of the subgroups within my collection that I've been focusing on lately.  I like having a checklist of posters to acquire, it makes for a fun search and provides a nice feeling of satisfaction when a gap is filled.

I always liked the strong graphics on the 3-sheet for Indestructible Man, which I prefer to the one sheet, so I was happy to get my hands on this copy.

Ben, did you happen to see this other The Mummy's Curse 3 sheet, currently on ebay? Before you posted your copy, I thought maybe this was the one you might have gone for.

It's in need of some TLC and the seller describes it in "Poor condition." The paper and folds look rather brittle with some fold splitting in some spots, more so near the bottom right. I'm sure it would look great, once the right kind of minimal "love" and conservation was given to it.


Opening bid is $1999.90

Me too.
Maybe he doesn't get why Heritage would promote heavy-hitter items a month in advance?
Or just why they would have the listing up before the photo?

And who cares if the pic is slightly delayed on the HA listing, . We can read what the item will be, what its estimate is, and we all know it will be added there eventually.  :)

It is probably easier to show everything in the database than it would be to specifically exclude items that are 'in progress.'

Jeff, I did see that 3-sheef for The Mummy's Curse on eBay, and I was tempted at first, but its overall condition made me decide not to bid on it with such a high starting bid.  It ended up not finding a buyer, so I guess I wasn't the only one who felt that way.  Too bad because at the right price, I would have bought it.

It will be interesting to see, should it be relisted, if the seller will reduce his opening bid price at all, or just stick with it.

The condition isnt all that bad, aside from that one area on the lower right corner with some vertical fold splitting & fraying. (And having to remove that tape from the back).

(And the comments/discussion about UNI horror market trends I split off and merged with the original thread that Rich started. Those comments are better suited there: http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,9106.0.html )

I would wonder if the posters were owned by the museum itself? Or maybe on loan from private collectors? If that was the case, then I would think they would be returned to those folks, once the museum closed. If museum owned, then stored away until a new venue is opened? Or maybe they were sold / donated to another museum?

I happened to see this article today on CNN: Are the credits rolling for London's Cinema Museum?

It implies that some of the items from the Museum of the Moving Image ended up at the The Cinema Museum, London (based in Lambeth).

I remember really enjoying the MOMI when I was a child living in London in the early '90s. I was surprised when I learned that it had closed.  I have never made it to the Cinema Museum on my few subsequent visits to London.  Though I've never been, it is sad to read that the museum is under threat. I will definitely put it on my list for my next London trip, whenever it is (assuming the museum stays, which I hope it does!)
