The only known 6 foot example of a poster from the 1931 classic Frankenstein has sold for $358,000 as part of a movie posters sale at Heritage Auctions.

The poster was the top selling lot in the March 28th-29th sale of vintage movie posters which in total raised $2.1 million.

Other top lots included a six sheet of The Maltese Falcon-the only known copy to have appeared at public auction-which managed $191,200 and a one sheet Style D for The Wizard of Oz which more than doubled its estimate at $65,725.
