Whether a collector is looking to decorate a home or office, to build a collection on a specialized subject or to purchase pieces as an investment, WalterFilm has the knowledge, experience and resources to help achieve those respective goals. In addition to working with private collectors, WalterFilm assists curators in building institutional collections at various libraries, museums and universities.
Original vintage movie posters have a long and fascinating history. An enormous number of different posters were made and there are an almost infinite number of collecting strategies one could follow.
The visual history of motion pictures is contained in movie still photography. Every aspect of the movie making process was featured in this medium and each is highly collectible.
Lobby cards are a uniquely American creation. They are a hybrid of movie posters and photographs. One early author on the subject described them as akin to antique Persian miniatures.
We only offer vintage original movie scripts, multiple drafts of the same script, early rare books and magazines and press books that were used to market films to theatre owners.
WalterFilm is interested in early rare books on the art of cinema.
WalterFilm’s focus is on both international and Hollywood movie memorabilia that touches on the history of motion pictures as well as objects that were part of the movie-making process.
African-American Collectibles and Black Memorabilia have grown in importance over the last decade, offering a wide selection of collectibles to those who wish to start or expand a collection.
With the growth of the LGBTQ movement, our sales to an ever-expanding number of institutions and individuals have made WalterFilm.com a major resource for LGBTQ Cultural History.
