1940 poster for Black Friday starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.
A rare collection of 1930s and 40s cinema posters discovered by two builders after they were used as carpet underlay have emerged for sale.
The classic Hollywood movie posters are from the halcyon days of cinema and include well known names such as Alfred Hitchcock, Sir Laurence Olivier and John Wayne.
The near pristine posters, which measure up to 7ft 2in by 6ft 5in, include some titles which have never been seen at auction before.
Auctioneers Rogers Jones & Co say it is difficult to predict what the posters will sell for as no comparisons have ever come to market but the collection of about 120 posters could fetch thousands.
The posters will be sold on September 15 at the Cardiff saleroom.
