12/08/2009 : Coming Soon: The Audrey Billington Collection
An amazing collation of autographs and film memorabilia is going on sale this year and is the lifetime collection of Audrey Billington.
Audrey Billington was fascinated by the movies from a very early age and started her collection with Picturegoer, which was a magazine published between 1913 and 1960 and featured the biggest stars in the movie world.
Following a growing stockpile of these magazines, Audrey's enthusiasm extended to Bette Davis and Joan Crawford autographs and her collection grew from there, covering some of the world's most loved and revered stars from the silver screen from Clarke Gable, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Olivia de Havilland to name but a few.
Interesting items for sale include Picturegoer magazines signed by the cover stars, letters, signed photographs & index cards and movie posters of classic films of yesteryear.
For film lovers everywhere, this is an auction well worth viewing.
Sale dates and times to be confirmed.
