Vintage Film Posters

Ercole Brini - Italian poster for SabrinaIf you fancy a nostalgia trip, click the title link for a BBC gallery of vintage film posters up for grabs at Christie's auction in London today. The art on offer includes this rare Italian poster for Billy Wilder's Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. The poster was designed by Ercole Brini and is valued at £3,000-£5,000. (Note: the two poodles were played by Bogart and Holden. What "girl power"!) This is one of 250 lots for sale, ranging from Carl Theodor Dreyer's silent movie La Passion de Jeanne D'Arc (1928) to Trainspotting (1996).
