British Royal Charity World Premiere Empire Day Poster, 1980 

Step back in time to the historic premiere of one of the greatest sequels in cinema history. Designed by the talented Eddie Paul of FEREF and featuring artwork by Ralph McQuarrie, this poster is a rare gem from 20th May 1980 – just a few days before British Empire Day.  

Empire Day was a celebration from the era of Queen Victoria, later renamed Commonwealth Day. The 20th Century Fox marketing department took full advantage of the film’s release date as an army of Stormtroopers – in Jeeps and on foot – took to the streets of London, holding placards of this poster to build up the crowd’s already heightened excitement for the much-anticipated sequel. 

Est. £10,000 – 20,000

Est. £3,000 – 6,000 

Lot 191 
UK Quad, 1964 

Robert Brownjohn’s poster design for this James Bond film refrained from the usual painted artwork approach with a photo montage – basing it on the title sequence he also created for the film. Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, Goldfinger went on to become the blueprint for James Bond films thereafter – combining glamour, gadgets, and guns for a franchise that always has a license to thrill! 

Est. £2,000 – 4,000

Designed by Neal Adams and Jack Kamen, it captures the chilling yet thrilling essence of 80s horror. But what sets this poster apart is its rare collection of autographs from the star-studded cast, including the late Leslie Nielsen, director George A. Romero, Tom Savini, and more.

UK Quad, 1966 

Since 1963, The Doctor and his sidekicks have been captivating audiences across the time-space continuum, fighting monsters and aliens in the TARDIS. In December of that groundbreaking year, viewers were introduced to the formidable Dalek race, sparking terror and fascination alike. The inevitable feature film in 1966, adorned with a vibrant poster by Bill Wiggins, depicted the menacing Daleks poised for Earth’s invasion. A masterpiece of color and design, this poster remains one of British cinema’s most coveted collectibles. 

Est. £800 – 1,600 

Lot 350 
Untrimmed UK “Gone with the Wind” Style A Quad 

Crafted by artist Roger Kastel, this 1980 masterpiece is hailed as one of the rarest and most exquisite Star Wars posters. Fondly dubbed the “Gone with the Wind” style for its resemblance to the classic 1939 poster for the film of the same name.  While many were trimmed for the London Underground, this untrimmed version is revered as the ‘Holy Grail’ of Star Wars posters, boasting a perfect 10/10 rarity rating from expert and author of The Star Wars Poster Book, Stephen Sansweet. 

Est. £8,000 – 16,000 

Lot 57 
David Frangioni Collection: John Alvin Autographed US Teaser One-Sheet, 1974 

This teaser One-Sheet for the comedic western spoof Blazing Saddles (1974) is one of the first posters designed by celebrated artist John Alvin. Featuring playful artwork perfectly suited to the genre, Alvin and director Mel Brooks would go on to work together again many times, both combining their creative expertise and comedic lenses. This particular piece is even more special, adorned with Alvin’s signature in bold black ink, dated “1974”. 

Est. £500 – 1,000 

Lot 315 
Advance British One-Sheet, 1980 

This British Advance One-Sheet (the image was also used in the US campaign) was designed by the creative genius Saul Bass for Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980). It is said that artist Saul Bass drew over 300 ideas for this single poster alone. Those with an attention to detail to rival Kubrick’s will notice a difference in the tagline of this design – ‘A Tale of Modern Horror’ – with the final version referring to the film as a ‘Masterpiece’. This is quite possibly one of a number of concept posters that Kubrick had personally commissioned before he decided the best version to go with. We have never seen another one, and it represents an ultra-rare first-time offering in this auction. 

Est.: £300 – £600 

The full online catalog is now available, with the auction lots closing live from 2pm BST on May 30, 2024. Remember to get those bids in early if you want a shot at picking up some incredible pieces of visual entertainment history.
