Mummy poster could fetch record at auction
By Halloween, “The Mummy” could set the record for the world’s most expensive movie poster. A 1932 lithographic poster promoting the Boris Karloff classic went up for online auction Thursday. The poster, advertising the influential Universal Pictures horror hit by Oscarwinning filmmaker Karl Freund, is believed to be one of only three remaining copies, according to Sotheby’s New York. The poster set a record two decades ago, selling for $453,500, before relinquishing the record in 2014. Last year brought the highest auction bid ever for a movie poster: $525,800 for 1931 “Dracula” art.
