Rare poster of “Dracula” in 1931 sold for a record amount

More than half a million dollars posted the winner of the recent auction of movie posters in Dallas (Texas) for a rare poster for the classic film “Dracula” (Dracula) 1931.

The exact amount of 525 thousand 800 dollars is a new world record, and the poster in question, became the most expensive poster in the world.

The willingness of collectors to pay such a fabulous price can be partly explained by the fact that are aware of the existence of only two specimens of this art. The one that went at auction for many years was kept by the family of George John. Mitchell Jr (Lt. Col. George J. Mitchell, Jr.), a member of the American cinematographic companies.
