A poster for the classic science-fiction movie Metropolis which holds the record for being the most expensive ever sold is to go under the hammer once again. The poster, painted by the German artist Heinz Schulz-Neudamm to promote the release of Fritz Lang's groundbreaking 1927 film about a dystopian future in the year 2000, is one of only four known surviving copies. It was bought by collector Kenneth Schacter for a still-record $690,000 (£443,210) in 2005.

Marvellous, always one of my favourites. Sad that there are only four originals in the world!

Schacter went bankrupt, hence the sale. Good news for us collectors!
