    Description

    Superman Serial Belgian Movie Poster (Columbia, 1947). A "second chapter" Belgian "window card" style poster with great graphics featuring the Man of Steel surrounded by fire, plus an insert image featuring Clark Kent and Lois Lane. This was from actor Kirk Alyn's personal collection, and he displayed in in his office for many years. The poster measures 14" x 21.5", framed with glass to an overall 16.25" x 23.25", and is in Fine condition with two small areas of old brown tape near the logo, and minor fold creases. From the Kirk Alyn Archives Collection.

    Provenance
    :
    Our consignor Clark Pickard's partner Ken Thompson had become friends with Kirk Alyn through Thompson's business. Thompson had been in the antique and collectibles business for several years and was visited by Kirk on occasion, in turn visiting Alyn in his home in The Woodlands, TX on numerous occasions, often assisting Alyn with various chores. Alyn had virtually all his numerous posters, pictures, awards, etc. on display in his home. The piece of "kryptonite" consigned to our Music & Entertainment Signature Auction in July, 2012 was on display in a lighted glass case on the fireplace mantel. Alyn seldom threw anything away that involved his career.
    When Alyn passed away in 1999, his companion was the sole benefactor of the estate, and called Ken Thompson one day to help her pack all of Alyn's items to store them in boxes in the couple's garage. Subsequently she decided to move back to Los Angeles, offering Kirk Alyn's memorabilia to Thompson.
    Ken Thompson passed away a little over a year ago of a heart attack, and now Clark Pickard owns the Kirk Alyn estate and has consigned many items from the estate to Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
