Check Out What $503,000 Worth of Vintage Movie Posters Looks Like

Don’t worry. Quivering with a giant smile on your face is a normal reaction after seeing these.

A whole host of vintage movie posters was found in Berwick, Pennsylvania and recently snagged over half a million dollars at auction. We may never be able to put them on our walls (unless one of our readers is insanely rich (in which case we have some exciting investment opportunities in a spunky little movie site we’d like to share with you)), but we can still ogle them.

What’s on the block? Posters from Dracula (1931), Cimmaron (1931), Little Caesar (1931) and the only known one sheet of the James Cagney-starring The Public Enemy (1931). Seriously, all the movies are from 1931. Check out some of the posters for yourself. Gaze upon their glory and shudder just a little.
