Heritage Auctions has over 1000 fabulous movie posters on the block. This 1933 King Kong poster is the star of the show and is valued at $80,000+.
The auction has rarities from every genre including horror, science fiction, film noir, Western, Alfred Hitchcock, musicals, comedy and many more.
Considered a visual triumph and one of the rarest three sheets in the hobby, the 1933 poster for King Kong gives justice to the monster ape. Standing 40-1/4” wide by 79” high, it features Kong on the side of the Empire State Building, clutching Fay Wray and snarling at the world below. It is expected to bring $80,000+.
“Posters from King Kong are rare to begin with, however far fewer examples of this style B poster are known to exist and rarely have they ever been offered at auction,” said Grey Smith, Director of Vintage Movie Posters at Heritage. “This poster has all the details necessary to qualify as the top of the collecting hobby. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for a top collector to acquire this gem."
