Hi Ken,

I just looked online for a few minutes at movie poster dealers (originals) - it seems 1997 one sheet 27" x 40" posters USA release Titanic, original, are selling for about $75. Maybe I am wrong. I see others for $16, $30 and $40 and up for international release, double sided etc., even advance materials. I also looked at recent auction results which are inflated - even then you could buy a genuine US full size poster signed by Leo and Kate for less than 1/4 the cost of these. A poster with Cameron, Stuart, DiCaprio and Winslet and Celine brought less than the asking price of these posters.

Best wishes,
Eric

Hello Eric. I was in an antique shop last week in Whitstable and they had for sale a reproduction front page of a 1912 newspaper with of course showing that Titanic had sunk. It did say that it was a reproduction but they were asking £125 for it.

This same shop also had two items for sale which had absolutely nothing to do with Titanic but had the word Titanic written on them. One was a small brass telescope about 9" when opened and was in a nice wooden box. The box had Titanic engraved on it and this was £60. Sharon was going to buy this for me until I explained that Titanic didn't have a telescope. There was also small mirrors about 7" high by 4" wide made in the shape of a porthole again with the word Titanic on them. It's that magical word "Titanic". Put that on something for sale and up goes the price.

Hi Ken,

Yes, that is true - that name sells anything. It is being used in some odd ways this time around. How are you doing?

Best wishes,

Hello Eric. I am fine as I hope you are to. Had a very hectic weekend filming a rod run for some friends of mine. It's like a time trial through 110 miles of the Kent countryside. My son (Richard) and I did the course last Wednesday to work out the best places to have a camera. Last year I did 20 minutes of filming and 90 pictures which Richard made in to a superb dvd which sold out. This year we have about 5 hours of filming and 1,200 pictures for Richard to make a dvd with. He has 4 weeks to try and get it finished. It almost makes me want to get a car again. Ken.
