'Lets Dance' with Fred Astaire - £468 (est £80) <br />
<br />
Oldies but Goldies...Movie posters from the halcyon days of the silver screen sell for ten times their estimate at auction.<br />
<br />
The unique hand-painted original artwork for the classic movie posters was estimated to sell for around £10,000 but the auction-block-busters went for much more due to frenzied bidding.<br />
<br />
The 150 designs were produced by W. E. Berry Ltd of Bradford, West Yorks, who were industry leaders in poster design for more than 75 years.<br />
<br />
Included in the sale are posters advertising British classic movies like Carve Her Name With Pride, The Titfield Thunderbolt and The Ladykillers.<br />
<br />
They belonged to the family of William Edward Berry but they have now made them available for sale for the first time.
