Iconic HOLLYWOOD Poster Sells for $90,000!

This fabulous HOLLYWOOD movie poster just sold at Heritage Auction Galleries for over $89,000.00!!!

For a Paramount, 1923 film, it has an comical illustration of a big head, representing the Hollywood, with lots of people getting ready to be eaten up by show biz! The biz'll chew you up and spit you out! Yikes!

The movie doesn't live up to the way cool poster, storywise. It was basically just a showcase vehicle for the silent film stars of the day, with everyone from “Fatty” Arbuckle, to Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, Zasu Pitts, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, William 'Hoppy' Boyd and dozens more making cameo appearances. Read the list of stars on the film's IMDB page - HOLLYWOOD 1923.

The poster was bought by noted poster collector Ralph Deluca, for $89,625.00, including buyer's premium.
