DALLAS, TX.- More than 1000 lots of rare and desirable posters are being offered in Heritage Auction's July 30-31, 2016 Movie Posters Signature® Auction. Such scarce horror titles as Son of Frankenstein (1939) Style A one sheet, (est. $50,000) and Dracula's Daughter (1936) one sheet (est. $25,000) as well as Casablanca (1942, est. $30,000) insert and Morocco (1930, est. $15,000) one sheet Style B.

Other highlights in July's stellar selection include a wide-ranging selection of important posters from the early days of Hollywood's Silent Film era that have never come up for auction before.

"Rarely do we get a collection of such early and significant film posters in such quantity as this wonderful group of 100-year-old posters, many of which are unrestored and in an unused state," said Grey Smith, Director of Vintage Posters at Heritage Auctions. "It's not going too far to suggest that this well may be the best selection of these types of posters Heritage has ever offered."

The Silent Film collection features almost 100 titles dating from 1915 through 1920, including such superstars of the age as Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, William S. Hart, Theda Bara, Lon Chaney and many more.

Titles include D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation (1915, est. $25,000), Chaplin in Triple Trouble (1918, est. $5,000) and Chase Me Charlie (1918, est. $5,000), Pickford in The Little American (1917, est. $5,000), Hart in Riddle Gawne (1916, $2,000) and Lon Chaney in The Penalty (1920, est. $10,000).

"We are so excited to get this great selection of one sheets, three sheets, six sheets and lobby cards from this early period in cinema history," said Smith. "Collectors of this kind of vintage paper are going to like what they see."

Other visually stunning posters include a one sheet for the 1935 classic The 39 Steps, which displays beautifully (est. $12,000); the original acrylic painting by famed poster artist Drew Struzan for the 1984 comedy Cannonball Run II (est. $4,000); and a sultry one sheet for 1947's Out of the Past, featuring Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer (est. $10,000).

A group of 25 animation posters range from the pre-war Terrytoons: 2,000 B.C. (1931, est. $1,000), beloved home front shorts such as Private Pluto (1943, est. $1,200) and Donald Duck in The Old Army Game (1943, $1,000) to modern classics including The Nightmare Before Christmas (1991, est. $1,000).
