Never know about the film. Good sharing.

These collectibles are quite costly. Well composed assortment. Thank you.

I would like some information on my Invisable Man movie poster. Please contact me at  luckyirishdragon@yahoo.com.   I'd be glad to send pictures. I can't seem to find any close to the size or color of mine. I believe it's a theatre poster. The bottom right corner says IMP and D.COPSON. There are a few other markings on it as well such as #1265. I believe it's size is 27x41 inches
