A poster for the 1931 horror movie Dracula that was gifted to a young film buff 70 years ago has been sold by his family for a world record £400,000.<br />
<br />
The 41ins by 27ins advert is described as the 'holy grail' of movie posters and is just one of two left in the world.<br />
<br />
It belonged the late George Mitchell jr whose son, Arthur, hung it on the back of his bedroom door for several years as a child.<br />

After Arthur's parents died he and his brother James inherited the Dracula poster.
