Whether it is in a dimly lit theatre with a group of strangers or sitting comfortably on your couch or favorite chair, the power of moving pictures combined with sound has enthralled and gripped us all like few other phenomena in this life. Regardless of what their detractors say television and the movies offer that most magical of sensations, escape. And if you are the high bidder on this lot you will have hours of recalling some of your own personal favorite escapes as you sift through the mountain of memorable images contained herein.

Featured in this lot is a comprehensive collection of well over 45,000 original press & promotional photos of practically any movie or television show produced from the earliest days of cinema through the early 2000's, direct from the John Rogers Collection Archive. The breakdown of the lot is approximately 25,000 movie photos and 20,000 televisions photos. All photos are still housed in their original labelled manila file envelopes. Large majority of the collection covers the 1970's through 1990's though there are a number of shots present from the Golden Age of cinema and television as well. Most of the photos are either 7" x 9" or 8" x 10" with some smaller sizes also included. This collection remains 100% untouched. All of the key images are here. Serious inquiries may call our office for detailed breakdowns.

A small sampling of some of the more prominent names and titles represented in this lot include Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, Jack Nicholson, Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Newman, Sean Connery, Tom Cruise, Audrey Hepburn, Merryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Taylor, Jodie Foster, Twin Peaks, X Files, Roseanne, Cosby Show, Sesame Street, Twilight Zone, MASH, Cheers, Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live, The Simpsons, The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather Trilogy, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Graduate, Jaws, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Indiana Jones, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Annie Hall, Back to The Future, Psycho, Harold & Maude, The Big Lebowski and many many more.

In addition, to give a more accurate representation of the truly comprehensive nature of this lot, we will list below the entire inventory of file folders in one storage tub each of the movie and television photos. Some of the folders contain one or two photos with more photos being present for the movies and shows which experienced greater popularity. Each of these listings represent less than 3% of the entire archive.
