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! 

The Nutty Professor French Poster

The Jerry Lewis take on the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story is a hoot. The movie stars Lewis as Professor Julius Kelp, a helpless nerd who creates a concoction that turns him into the devilish Buddy Love. The movie was popular and still has some influence to this day. The Simpsons character, Professor Frink, was likely inspired by the character of Kelp -- in fact, The Simpsons would go on to spoof The Nutty Professor in Season 6. The movie would get an animated sequel 40 years later, as well as a remake staring Eddie Murphy.

Heritage notes that this is an unrestored poster in Very Fine condition. As this is the French version interest may not be as high. A lucky winner could get this for under $70, with the buyer's premium.


Here's a fun piece of weird trivia. I'm partially obsessed with Willem Dafoe. During the summer of 2002, I went to Suncoast every week and would buy any Willem Dafoe movies I could find -- including Platoon. While I would go on to see many movies that summer during my highschool years, Platoon stuck out the most to me. The 1986 film about the Vietnam War was raw, harrowing, and one hell of a movie. While Dafoe's character didn't make it out in the end, the movie struck a serious chord with myself and the countless other people who have also seen it.

This poster is unrestored and is noted as being in Very Fine condition. Posters for Platoon trend under $50, making this an affordable piece for collectors.

Robocop French Poster

If you've never seen RoboCop, why? This 1987 cult classic has it all; claymation, brutal death scenes, gore, and weird humor. RoboCop would go on to spawn a few sequels, comics, and even an animated series aimed at children. Despite the R rating and over the top violence, RoboCop was heavily marketed towards kids thanks to the many toys released from the movie. The movie became a pop culture staple in the late 1980s, and is still revered today. In 2014 a reboot was released to financial success, but was a pale homage to the original. A new movie is currently in pre-production, though rumor has it this film will not acknowledge the prior RoboCop films that came before.

This unrestored poster is in Very Fine condition and presents well. RoboCop posters and merchandise are highly collectible, yet still very affordable. As this is the French edition of the poster, it will likely go for under $100. If you're a fan of crazy science fiction movies, or a RoboCop fan, don't sleep on this poster.
