Most expensive poster…

… to a probably one of the most important science fiction films ever made, namely Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 classic, “Metropolis”. There are few copies of the original, two at display in museums.

This is an international version of the poster, and the whooping prize for it was $690,000 in 2005. Another copy for sale now is offered at $850,000 through a commercial site The Movie Poster Exchange. Th owner of the site calls the piece “the crown jewel of the poster world.”.

OK, it is beautiful. Buut honestly, the prize seems a bit crazy.
