- Fathom by Gerard Allison (20th Century Fox, 1967). Signed Original Acrylic Poster Artwork (22" X 29"). Thanks to the success of the spy genre, mostly in part due to the popularity of Britain's favorite MI-6 agent James Bond, what followed brought with it an explosion of parodies, such as Our Man Flint, That Man from Rio, Modesty Blaise, as well as the Dean Martin led Matt Helm films. 1960s 'It' girl Raquel Welch gets a turn in the genre as Fathom, an American skydiver recruited by a spy agency to extract a dangerous bomb detonator from hostile agents.

Wells as a loose adaptation of his own 1933 novel, The Shape of Things to Come, and his 1931 non-fiction piece, The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind. Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000

- Help! (United Artists, 1965). Door Panel Set of 4 (20" X 60"). These door panels are some of the most incredibly rare of Beatles promotional items and were produced for their second feature film. Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000
