Original Film Posters Online returns with an exceptional variety of titles including Cinématographe Lumière, the inaugural poster designed for the first ever public screening of a film in 1896. The sale features a strong James Bond section as well as sci-fi giants including Star Wars, Forbidden Planet and King Kong. The exhibition is on view in our London galleries throughout the month of August.

The Pink Panther is a fictional animated character who appeared in the opening and/or closing credit sequences of every film in the Pink Panther series except for A Shot in the Dark and Inspector Clouseau. In the storyline of the original film, "the Pink Panther" was the name of a valuable pink diamond named for a flaw that showed a "figure of a springing panther" when held up to the light in a certain way; in the credits this was translated to an animated pink panther.

The character's popularity spawned a spin-off franchise of theatrical shorts, television cartoons and merchandise. He starred in 124 short films, 10 TV shows and 4 TV specials. The character is closely associated with "The Pink Panther Theme", composed by Henry Mancini.

Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978) poster, US, estimate 500 - 800 GBP

Unframed Dimensions: 41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)

This was the sixth film in the popular Pink Panther comedy series, and was the last on-set performance released during the lifetime of Peter Sellers.
