BOLO: Stolen posters!

DarioDario Member, Restoration Yoda Posts: 157 ✭✭ One-Sheeter
HI Gang,

Some disturbing news. A fellow friend and collector Michael and his son Jason have been burglarized.

They have spent many many years to acquire some rare autographs from directors and movie stars, all on original movie posters.

The theft occurred in Los Angeles Calif. in a storage locker. They have a flat file in the locker containing posters and someone knew.

If there is such thing as good news? These posters are very unique and easy to separate from the rest out there, due to the autographs. 

Pretty much all poster are linen backed by me. I have been able to retrieve some images, but unfortunately some of the poster that I worked on are from a very long time ago. Incl. the uber rare Clock Work Orange advance Top Hat poster signed by Malcolm McDowell. 

Here is a list and some pics. I kindly ask you all to keep an eye/ear out there. Maybe admin can pin this?


Sincerely,
dario.
