Rare War of the Worlds movie poster goes up for auction

A rare cinema poster for 1953's The War of The Worlds is among 300 movie posters to be auctioned.

The original British quad for the sci-fi film is estimated to fetch between £3,000 and £5,000 at auction in Dudley, West Midlands, on Tuesday.

The collection was amassed by former RAF man Brian O'Connor who used to help out at a force's cinema in the 1950s.

His widow, Liz O'Connor, who lives in Folkestone, Kent, says she hopes the posters can now be enjoyed by other people.
