French Master Mystery poster beats auction estimate

A rare French poster for Houdini’s 1918/19 movie serial The Master Mystery (Episode 8 -- Un Plan Diabolique) surpassed its auction estimate and sold for £5,000 ($7,345) at Christie’s in London on Dec 4.

The poster, which was Lot 18 / Sale 5425, carried a £2000 - £3000 ($3,022 - $4,533) estimate.

As a rule, Master Mystery posters that feature either the Automaton (said the be the first movie robot ever) or Houdini in restraints are the most desirable...and this beauty has both!
