DescriptionCreature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Folded, Very Fine-. Insert (14" X 36") Reynold Brown Artwork.
This film has such wide appeal that even the great Ingmar Bergman is said to have adored it, watching the movie every year on his birthday! Posters from the picture are equally loved, and creature-feature buffs will not be disappointed with this excellent insert. Since the initial release of this film, the Creature has become one of the most popular monsters in the Universal stable, rivaling such horror icons as Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man. Showcasing some of artist Reynold Brown's most well known artwork, this insert displays a clean interior with only light fold wear, a thin horizontal crease, and faint surface scuffs. Issues on the periphery of the poster include pinholes, unobtrusive smudges, minor tears, and a small chip in the top left. There are a few small pieces of paper tape remnants on the verso of the insert.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
