So I've been entertaining/annoying other MP venues and sparing VMPFers/daybill love-slaves!  =)

But I'll pontificate re this subject:

+ Latest article:

https://observer.com/2018/10/sothebys-halloween-auction-mummy-movie-poster/

+ A super-heavyweight told me it would flail - "a retail sale masquerading as an auction"

+ Many US newspapers prominently covered the announcement:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2018/10/11/rare-mummy-poster-could-fetch-record-million-plus-auction

Good for hobby, embarrassing if it flails!

+ It REALLY is in NM condition but how? In "Reel Art" book it was reported that studios printed 13-20K one sheets in 1930s for major movies but NOBODY collected them or preserved them. Only 3 Mummy 1S survived to now.

+ "Horror Legend Joe Dante on The Mummy, Film Posters and Growing Up a Monster Kid"

British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
