Grand Legacy of the Movie Industry in MEXICO, 1930's-1980's

Vast Collection of 150,000 Vintage Original Movie Posters, 1930's-1980's:

One of the world's largest collections of Original, Vintage Movie Posters has been purchased in Mexico, and is now housed in the SO BAY area of San Diego, CA.

This collection of 150,000 13"x17" oversized title/lobby cards from MX spans the years of 1930's-1980's. It contains the wealth and variety of over 15,000 cult and classic film titles---from the US, Europe, Mexico and other Foreign Lands.

The graphics are stunning! They are all original and from the Major Film Studios, contemporaneous with each film's release worldwide. However, these very special 13"x17" posters have a much greater density of art and images than posters from any other country.
Classic Illustrations, Drawings, Photographs, and Stills all laid out on each Film Poster. Melodramatic BALLYHOO (in Spanish, of course), and original Cast and Credits, and unique fonts for the Film's title: all round out the overall design of each unique Movie Poster.

Not only did Mexico have a grand and glorious Film Industry during their own 'EPOCA DE ORO' (Golden Age---1930's-1960), but also the general population of Mexico had a much greater opportunity to see the entire spectrum of Films produced worldwide. Classic oldies from MGM and Warners and RKO; internationally famous directors like De Sica, Truffaut, Bu??uel, Kurosawa, Fellini, Resnais, Ray (India); and lurid Cult Films from the worldwide vaults of Horror, Sci-Fi, Adolescent Exploitation, MX Wrestlers, Italian Westerns and Gladiator Epics, Martial Arts, Sex/Drugs/Rock&Roll, etc etc.

The collection has been displayed and publicized worldwide via the Internet; and is available for exhibition and promotional events.
