Once again, Heritage have produced an impressive array of vintage movie posters with their latest signature auction. They have consistently been able to combine quality and quantity with a greater selection of titles than perhaps any other auction house has ever achieved.

One the highlights of this auction is the Universal Horror poster...

The Black Cat

The estimate for The Black Cat is in the range of $100,000.00 - $175,000.00. It certainly is a magnificent poster and it will be interesting to see the final result.

As a collector of Hitchcock posters it has always been a bit of a mystery to me that Universal Horror posters always seem to fetch such huge amounts at auctions. I have heard all of the arguments but they have never really convinced me. To me a one sheet for, say, The 39 Steps or Blackmail should have a similar value to The Black Cat but, of course, nothing could be further than the truth. At the present time Universal Horror posters remain at the pinnacle of the movie poster collecting fraternity and there are no real signs of that changing.
