A private collector paid a record $453,000 for a poster of the 1932 Boris Karloff classic film "The Mummy," spending more than twice the previous high mark for a movie poster, Sotheby's said. The buyer, who identified himself only as a New York collector, outbid a second man as the cost of the rare poster--only two are known to exist--spiraled to more than four times its pre-sale estimate of up to $100,000, Sotheby's spokeswoman Kate Drury said.
