Lot 78  
UK Quad – Linen Backed, 1951
Very Fine

Before Star Wars existed, there was The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951). It brought together all that later sci-fi movies strive for: a solid story, believable characters, and groundbreaking special effects, including one of the most iconic robots ever created, Gort.

Due to lower print quantities for American sci-fi B-movies in the UK, this scarce poster is highly sought after amongst collectors. This UK quad features country-unique imagery, focusing on Gort and displaying a bright purple background. This example has been conservation linen-backed with minor restoration and will display beautifully in any sci-fi lover’s home.

Estimate £10,000 – £20,000

Lot 105
Printer’s Test Proof Concept Design One-Sheet – Linen-Backed, 1999    
Christiane and Katharina Kubrick

A peek behind the curtain, this concept design for Eyes Wide Shut is the only known printer’s proof to have survived. Designed by Stanley Kubrick’s wife Christiane and daughter Katharina as a tribute to the director after he passed away prior to the release of the film. The evocative red background was chosen as it was Kubrick’s favourite colour, and the simplicity of the design works to be incredibly striking. The film’s lead actors, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, are presented as masks – a reference to the movie’s mysterious masked cult and themes of trust, betrayal, and secrecy.

Estimate £600 – £1,200

David Frangioni Collection: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – Rome Premiere Poster, Italian 24-Sheet, 1966      
Franco Fiorenzi and Michelangelo Papuzza
Very Good

A one-of-a-kind original 24-sheet created for the Italian premiere of Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966). This rare poster was produced exclusively for the Italian premiere of the third film in the “Man With No Name” Trilogy, released in December 1966.
This large format poster would present beautifully as the centerpiece of any collection, with artwork by Franco Fiorenzi and Michelangelo Papuzza on a unique silver foil background. Images of Eastwood (Blondie), Eli Wallach (Tuco), and Lee Van Cleef (Angel Eyes) stand as the focus, a combination of the designs seen on the 2-Fogli and 4-Fogli.
Estimate £40,000 – £80,000

Lot 131
David Frangioni Collection: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – Complete Set of Three Rome Premiere Character Panels – Linen-Backed, 1966

Created to stand tall at the world premiere of Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966), this set of three large banners show the film’s three stars ready for a Mexican standoff. The black and white images of the Man with No Name (Clint Eastwood), Tuco (Eli Wallach) and Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef) create a fitting sense of intimidation around the trio.
These large-format banners are conservation linen-backed, and rarely come to market as a complete set, making this lot highly desirable and one to watch for any fans of the Western genre.
Estimate £20,000 – £40,000

Lot 247
Mounted Original Mowgli and Baloo Dancing Hand-Painted Animation Cel, 1967
Very Fine

This lot is one of “The Bare Necessities” for any Walt Disney fans out there – an original hand-painted animation cel from The Jungle Book (1967). Rendered in gouache and presented in a card mount, the charming cel depicts Mowgli and Baloo dancing during one of the film’s many musical numbers. The lot also features an official Walt Disney sticker that states “This is an original hand-painted celluloid drawing actually used in a Walt Disney production”.

Estimate £1,000 – £2,000

Lot 261
KING KONG (1933)
Exhibitor’s Campaign Book, 1933

A true piece of early cinema history – a first-release US campaign book for the spectacular and groundbreaking 1933 adventure King Kong. The book contains a combination of art and stills of “The Eight Wonder of The World”, along with production statistics (as was common in this era) and a detailed synopsis. As with many booklets printed prior to WWII, the pages are linen within a paper cover and are in stunning condition despite being over 90 years old.
Estimate £500 – £1,000

Lot 328
French ‘Moyen’ – Linen Backed, 1937
Bernard Lancy
Very Good-

Designed by artist Bernard Lancy, this poster for Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs shows the titular characters playing music and dancing around their cottage – creating a serene, idyllic, and soft image. But wait – who is that hiding amongst the foliage but the evil witch! This first-release poster rarely comes to market and will make a charming addition to any Disney fan’s collection.

Estimate £2,000 – £4,000

Lot 346

Very Fine+

Autographs will always be highly desirable, and this Exhibitor’s Cast and Crew Booklet for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back will certainly cause a disturbance in the force for all the Jedi out there! The booklet contains signatures from stars such as Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and many more. Crew autographs include George Lucas, Irvin Kershner, Gary Kurtz, Ralph McQuarrie, and others. Very rarely is such a complete set of autographs from the film offered, making this a highly desirable lot for Star Wars fans and autograph collectors everywhere.

Estimate £5,000 – £10,000

Lot 347
“Gone with the Wind” Style A UK Quad, 1980
Roger Kastel
Near Mint

By the brilliant and sadly missed Roger Kastel, the “Gone With The Wind” Style A Quad for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is considered to be the Holy Grail of Star Wars posters, with a 10/10 rarity rating from writer Stephen Sansweet in his Star Wars Poster Book. After a very limited initial release, many of these posters were trimmed for usage on the London Underground, with this being one of those. Unrestored with bright colours and distinctive silver lettering, this is the perfect addition to your Star Wars collection.               

Estimate £3,000 – £6,000

Lot 367
