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.
The 41ins by 27ins advert is described as the 'holy grail' of movie posters and is just one of two left in the world.
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.
After Arthur's parents died he and his brother James inherited the Dracula poster.
