    Description

    Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (Allied Artists, 1958). Very Fine+ on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 78.5"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
    There are few images in the realm of campy, 1950s sci-fi that are more recognizable than this Reynold Brown illustration of an enraged Allison Hayes, a giantess on the warpath searching for her philandering husband. Created with a plot made of pure '50s pseudo-science and a shoestring budget, this cult classic has grown into mainstream pop culture, making its posters a prime piece in any sci-fi collection. There was no six sheet produced for this film, and thus the three sheet is the largest and most scarce paper for the title and is by far the most impressive format for this film. Professional touchup has been applied to parts of the folds and misfolds, a few minor tears and chips, small fold separations, and pinholes. A few very faint smudges are still visible. The borders have been partially airbrushed. This exquisite poster can be a cornerstone for any sci-fi collection.


    Estimate: $20,000 - $40,000.
