Movie buffs are expected to rake in a small fortune at an auction of 400 iconic posters from classic films - worth an estimated £170,000.

Prop Store auctioneers in Chenies are selling the collection from a range of legendary flicks such as The Dam Busters on behalf of a number of collectors.

Founder Stephen Lane's collection hobby left him inundated with props from some of the nation's favourite films.

Now, punters visiting the store could own original items like Star Wars: A New Hope and Quadrophenia.

The 1955 Dam Busters piece costs up to £8,000 and features a painted Lancaster plane passing an aircraft hangar as a pilot watches on.

Lucky bidders could claim a Star Wars poster featuring Luke Skywalker clad in white, with X-wing Starfighters heading for the Death Star.

Or they could claim a piece of Mod history - by owning a 1979 Quadrophenia poster featuring a lineup of moped riders in Brighton.

Actor Phil Daniels posed on his Lambretta scooter for the additional cut out, and singer Sting can be seen in the background.

While another British classic - the first James Bond film, Dr No, is up for grabs at £10,000.

Punters can snap up the 1962 poster that features a winking Sean Connery flanked by four Bond girls in various states of undress.

The posters range from the 21" x 25" Dr Who item - to the 28" x 41" Star Wars A New Hope addition to the collection.

Prop Store chief executive Stephen said: "We're excited to announce our third cinema poster auction.

"We have over 400 lots going under the hammer, including more collectable James Bond and Star Wars posters.

"There is a fantastic horror collection and one of the most comprehensive collections of UK Carry On posters ever."

Other posters going under the hammer include original designs for Doctor Who and Thunderbirds Are Go from 1966.

The bold 1963 poster captures all the Thunderbirds and their crafts with a warning for "adults over 16" to be accompanied by children.

Whereas the surreal, classic Dr Who poster features a number of villains suspended in an ethereal blue mist.

Mike Bloomfield, Prop Store's poster expert said: "This is another well-balanced cinema poster auction.

"We have an excellent range of posters from across the globe and some outstanding homegrown quads too."

Punters are invited to come along on June 25, but interested parties can also access the sale via live-stream.

The memorabilia specialists previously sold the jacket Harrison Ford wore as Han Solo in the Star Wars films - after it was billed to reach £1million in September.

A spokesman said: "The Han Solo jacket worn by Harrison Ford in The Empire Strikes Back (1980) sold for a significant six figure sum in a flurry of post auction activity."
