Welcome back to this week's look at Heritage's Sunday night movie poster auction! Each week Heritage auctions off some truly unique finds across all movie genres, such as movie serials, animation, science fiction, romance, and more. Each week I find a few gems that could be overlooked! Here are my pics for this week's unique finds! 

Akira 1989

Akira's influence on how the West viewed anime is still relevant to this day. Originally released in Japan in 1988, Akira would quickly get an English dub in 1989 from Electric Media. Released under the Streamline Pictures company, Electric Media's dub of Akira is how many people discovered anime for the first time. Anime had been brought over to America prior (Speed Racer, for example), but Akira showed Western audiences that anime wasn't for kids. The movie was released on VHS in 1991, before seeing another dub release (and subsequent DVD release) from Pioneer years later. Akira is rightfully praised as being one of the best anime movies of all time, while the original manga is praised just as much.

This poster for the Streamline Pictures release is fantastic. While it does have signs of folding, this is still in overall Very Fine condition. This is a great chance to own a piece of anime history in the US.

Der Fuehrer's Face Sheet Music 1943

When America entered World War II, Disney was commissioned to create several films and other propaganda, including one of the more ubiquitous pieces from the era -- Der Fuehrer's Face. The short featured Donald Duck working in "Nazi Land" during a dream sequence. The titular song from the short -- Der Fuehrer's Face -- became a hit, causing the short to be renamed from its original title (Donald Duck in Nuzi Land), and the short would even go on to win an Academy Award. While Disney may be distancing itself from the short today, it remains an important part of Disney, and pop culture history.

This 6-page sheet music from the short is incredible. Featuring the well-known image of Donald Duck throwing a tomato at Hitler's eye, this sheet music is still in overall Very Fine- condition. This piece is not for everyone, but for the right collector, this is a chance to obtain something very unique.

Pinocchio Herald 1940

Likely released shortly before the release of Pinocchio in February 1940, this herald was an advertisement for the movie. While the movie was well-received by critics and audiences, the movie was not a box-office success. The studio had been facing bankruptcy, and the movies that came out during World War II were not financial wins for the company. Yet still, for Disney's second animated feature, Pinocchio helped push the boundaries of what animation could do even further.

This unrestored herald is noted as being in Very Fine- condition with wear. This item doesn't come up for auction very often -- for Heritage, this is only the second time this has become available.

They Live 1988

John Carpenter's 1988 film They Live would quickly become a cult classic after its release. With a great cast starring Roddy Piper and Keith David, and an unforgettable tagline - "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubblegum" - it's easy to see why this movie is so popular. The movie has remained relevant for over 30 years and is still entertaining with each rewatch. If you have yet to enjoy this movie, I urge you to go watch it - now. Seriously, stop reading and go watch it.

This one sheet is noted as being in Very Fine condition and is unrestored. This poster has been reproduced countless times and is an iconic piece of horror, but to own an original would be killer!
