I happen to know that several regulars on this forum collect some sort of movie memorabilia. Although, this may be a bad time of year to ask such broad questions. Many people are out of their regular routine.
I, myself, used to collect "photo-play illustrated books". Those are the books that had "stills" from the film printed in them. Somewhere, packed in all my junk- uh, stuff, I have over 200 titles of such books. Most of them are from the silent era. A few into the "talkies" era. One of my favorite talkies is "Little Caesar". "Wings" is one of my favorite movies of all time. I think I have three copies of the book.
Happy New Year! And drive carefully, W2

Harvy,
I have several autographed portraits from the teens, twenties and thirties, Al Jolson, Wallace Reid, Hoot Gibson, Wm Farnum and several more. All of these are autographed to Lewis Hippe. I also have a cast photo of the 1915 film "Her Painted Hero" signed by all the cast and crew. I wish I could post pix but they are all framed and hanging in a bathroom at the lake. It's funny, when people use that bathroom they are usually gone for a while looking at the memorabilia.
Happy New Year, Bob

I've collected movie poster and memorabilia for about 20 years. I started out with stuff from movies based on novels by author Harold Bell Wright (1920-30s). Then I started collecting a few old westerns and 1950-60s Disney movies. The silent movie era posters are a great thing to display with Model Ts. Some of those movie items are really hard to find, as most of the stuff ended up in WWII paper drives. I have heard that about half of all movies before 1942 do not have any surviving posters. Also many of them are lost films.

I collect stuff related to Howard Hughes and have a few things from his movie making days.

One is a blanket with "Hughes Productions" imprinted on it. A friend found it in a thrift store in Los Angeles many years back & I managed to acquire it by trading a couple of WW2 era things I had.
