An original 1931 "Frankenstein" poster set a world record price for an insert movie poster when it sold for $262,900 at a Heritage auction in Dallas on July 27, 2013. The 36-by-14-inch poster (the size is called an "insert"), printed on card stock, was made to advertise the movie in a theater display. The seller bought it for less than $5 at an antique store in about 1968. It has been stored in a closet for the past 30-some years.
