Metropolis poster fetches record

I can’t find any news worth blogging today (don’t have much time either as i’m still in Germany), so here’s a picture worth publishing.


An original poster for Fritz Lang‘s 1927 film Metropolis has sold for a world record price of $690,000.

A US collector bought the art deco work by Heinz Schulz-Neudamm – one of only four known copies – from London’s Reel Poster Gallery. The others are at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, Berlin’s Film Museum and in another private collection.
