Nicolas Cage Sells Movie Poster For Big Bucks
Nicolas Cage may have had the box office topping movie last weekend but another movie also put a little more money in his pockets. His copy of a 1931 "Dracula" movie poster sold for $310,700 to a retired financial executive and collector as part of an auction of movie posters by Heritage Auction galleries on March 21. The collector, Ralph DeLuca, also picked up a copy of the poster for the 1932 movie "Freaks." That poster was only bought for just $10 by the owners who found it in an antiques store in the early 1970s. The two-day auction in Dallas and online generated $2.5 million in winning bids.
