Mark Hochman, Prop Store’s poster expert said: “Our first cinema poster auction of 2020 includes an impressive collection of popular titles many of which have rarely appeared on the auction market in recent years (if ever) and includes not only original movie posters from around the globe, but artwork and the increasingly collectable area of ‘mondo’ posters.  The provenance of this collection is exceptional and our Star Wars selection truly outstanding.”
