For 35 years, Chicago collector Dwight Cleveland has searched the globe for rare movie posters, he says.

Now Cleveland's planning on donating those movie posters to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

The donated 1,088 posters cover the pre-1945 era of filmmaking, concentrating on "B" movies and spanning westerns, war films, musicals, biblical tales and social-issue films, and they'll be housed in the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library.
