‘Star Wars’ (1977)
One of the rarest ‘Star Wars’ posters, this promo was used in select US cities back in 1977. It’ll set you back £15,000, payable in pounds or galactic credits.


‘A Hard Day’s Night’ (1964)
This iconic album cover-turned-movie poster is the work of Robert Freeman. Yes, that is Albert Steptoe – AKA Wilfrid Brambell – in the third row.


‘The Dam Busters’ (1955)

If this stirring British poster doesn’t stiffen your upper lip, seek immediate medical attention and/or a strong brandy.


‘Goldfinger’ (1964)
Sean Connery, Honor Blackman and Margaret Nolan share this classic 007 poster. The estimated sale price? £6,000.


Dr Who and the Daleks’ (1965)
This poster for the Time Lord’s big-screen debut features the Daleks exterminating their enemies in glorious Technicolor.


‘Dracula  AD 1972’ (1972)

Not the greatest ‘Dracular’ film in the Hammer canon, perhaps, but its poster is a cheesy delight. 

Prop Store’s poster auction takes place at BFI Imax on Jun 28. A free preview exhibition starts at the venue on Jun 22. The restored ‘Dam Busters’ is out on DVD, Blu-ray and Collector’s Edition.
