Rare Hollywood film posters found by builders

1 post in this topic

A collection of rare Hollywood film posters which had been used as carpet underlay for decades have been sold at auction for £60,000.

One print, from the John Wayne film Stagecoach, fetched £31,000 alone as part of a lot of 66 items.

Two builders made the discovery by chance while renovating the home of a late cinema owner in Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, in 1985.

The posters were used in cinemas in Cardiff between 1936 and 1940.
