Back once again is the Christies Vintage Film Poster auction, taking place on 11th March 2009.

In truth, the selection this time is fairly uninspiring – lots of Blow Up, Breakfast At Tiffany's and Bond posters up for sale at a premium price. But if you dig deeper, there are a few rare gems. One of those is an Alan Aldridge Chelsea Girls poster (between £3,000 – £5,000), but more affordable is the classic Qui Êtes-Vous, Polly Maggoo?

An obscure 1966 fashion flick, its imagery has become far more famous than William Klein's actual movie and this 32 x 23-inch French linen-backed poster is sure to be popular. And with a guide price of around £400, it might be a shrewd investment. You can bid online for this or any other poster or you can head down to the South Kensington salesroom if you fancy waving a bit of card yourself.
