DescriptionAttack of the Crab Monsters (Allied Artists, 1957). Folded, Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
On an amazingly thin budget, Roger Corman created this entertaining monster movie about giant atomic-mutated crabs that eat people's brains after luring them into caves telepathically. The film was written by Charles B. Griffith (Little Shoppe of Horrors) and co-stars Russell Johnson (the Professor on Gilligan's Island). A sensational piece, this half sheet is the best format of the all the posters for the film as it displays the "full-size" crab. Signs of use include slight edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, some creasing, and a few tears. There are dust shadows, mostly unobtrusive stains and smudges, tape stains, as well as color fading. The verso has a few strips of linen tape.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
