The Strange Case of the Man and the Beast (Minerva, 1952). Folded, Very Fine-. Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55") Anselmo Ballester Artwork. Heritage is pleased to present this first time offer. This Italian poster for the Argentinean version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is one of the most spectacular images ever created for an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's story. Although the film was made in 1951, it wasn't released in Italy until the following year and Anselmo Ballester, one of Italy's finest movie poster artists, was given the job of making the graphics as horrific as possible. The film was supposedly released in the US in 1956, but we've been unable to locate any information regarding the title -- so, this may be one of the very few posters available for this rare horror title. Indications of usage include slight fold wear and separation, minor chips, and small tears. Also apparent are some creases as well as edge and fold toning.
