    Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (Allied Artists, 1958). Poster (40" X 60"). During the 1950s, fear of radiation and its effects gripped nuclear-age America. It seems as though every science fiction film made during this period used the new science as a plot device sure to strike fear into the hearts of moviegoers nationwide. But few films had as much fun with the concept as Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. Allison Hayes is a housewife whose husband (William Hudson) openly flaunts his many affairs inspire of his wife's loving devotion. But when Hayes witnesses the crash of a UFO, she is exposed to the craft's radioactive debris, causing her to grow to gigantic proportions with confidence to match. Who can forget the scene where Hayes tromps through the streets in search of her philandering mate calling, "HARRY-HARRY"? While the one sheet for this drive-in favorite is available from time to time, the larger paper is a bit harder to come by, especially in the 40" X 60" format. This example, with its awesome Reynold Brown art, has two pinholes in the field along with staining in the bottom border and wear at the edges. Horizontal creases have formed at the top and bottom and there are chips in the bottom right and top left corners. Fine.
