This is fun. I grew up seeing thousands of posters pass through my family's hands. The only poster I ever passionately wanted and continue to crave for myself is the one sheet for "Breakfast at Tiffany's". When I was a teenager, I had the opportunity to buy it for $300. Ofcourse, my parents stopped me. Last week I saw the same poster available for $6,000. My dad had restored and linenbacked at least twenty of the Breakfast at Tiffany's one-sheets. A poster that I did buy a few years back was for "Big Fish". I loved the image of the Tree and I could identify with the story. I can also identify with the story of 'Amelie'. Some of my other favorites are all the magic posters, Disney, and turn of the century posters by artists Cheret and Mucha. Aside, I just had a good childhood memory: Here's the visual: When I was 12 years old my parents rented a house with a garage. This was the only year I ever lived in a house. The house had backyard garage next to a nice yard. One of the rooms was used as the art studio and then linenbacking was done in the garage. One day the 3-sheet of King Kong was being mounted. I saw the giant gorilla sticking out of the garage. I think this was about the same time Michael Jackson had a Monkey. Anyhow, something about seeing Kong made me want a real monkey in the back yard. The Academy of Motion Pictures owns that particular King Kong. It is displayed in the Margaret Herrick Library and sometimes I visit it and remember when it was in my backyard.

Welcome to the forum movieposterfan!
I agree,'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is a very nice poster.Also a very expensive one.In the $6,000-8,000 range.
Here's a dealer that has one.
CINEMASTERPIECES

Once in awhile one can be had on ebay as well,of course.

Cheers,
Anthony

I remember very well seeing one sheet's of "Breakfast At Tiffany's" selling in Movie Collector's World for around $50.00 each. This was quite common in the late 1970's to early 1980's. After Audrey passed away there was so much renewed interest in her and her films. A true talent. It's good to have you on the forum Leena. Your Dad restored and linenbacked my most favorite posters. It's nice to know they are preserved properly for the future. --Best, Tom
