Best answer: I have that hanging in my living room! It's this one, and just your luck it seems to be on sale.

(That seller, by the way, has all sorts of foreign movie posters. I decorated my new apartment with them: a Polish Die Hard, a Japanese Annie Hall, that Metropolis one, and an Italian 2001.)

Read the seller reviews before you order, some people have complained that they received images that appeared to be photographs of posters and/or pixellated enlargements.

Oh, yeah, that's what they are, in fact, the vintage foreign ones at least. So they're not great for up-close viewing, but one couch-width away, the Metropolis one looks perfectly fine. My 2001 one has a crease in it that was from the original poster they photographed.

As genuine posters go, I don't think this price is out of line, but ymmv. This is the 2010 re-release, not an original from 1926, which would be vastly more expensive.

Note that Ideefixe's poster has terribly underthought New And Improved! ugliness in the top left.
