The half-million-pound dream



From The Guardian:

"A new record for the price of film memorabilia is expected to be set with the sale of a rare Metropolis movie poster – yours for $850,000."

That's £542,507 in proper money!

More record-breaking movie posters

The poster for Fritz Lang's Metropolis is indeed an object of great beauty. Here at Dolores Delargo Towers, it would look fab in the West Wing.

However, could we ever imagine having that kind of money to spend - on a poster?

These are the things that dreams are made of...

    2. Perhaps if we pool our resources we could share it.

      Oh who am I kidding?

  3. So much of Metropolis is all about how it looks. It certainly isn't the acting.

    1. I agree - it is a visual artwork rather than an excellent film... Jx

  4. Well, it is an excellent poster. Money is excellent, too!

    1. I think it is the case that if I had the money to buy a poster for £500k, I'd more likely spend the £500k elsewhere... Jx
