Description

    Bride of the Monster (Filmmakers Releasing, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    One of the classic films from the mind of director Edward D. Wood Jr., this is the story of the evil Dr. Eric Varnoff (Bela Lugosi), who kidnaps a brace of strapping young men in order to turn them into supermen via the application of atomic radiation. Unfortunately, Varnoff's plans come to naught, and he meets his end in the arms of a rubber octopus (previously seen in the John Wayne classic, Wake of the Red Witch). Throughout, Bela gives the picture his all, supported by the unforgettable Tor Johnson as Lobo. This picture stands alone as the only Wood film to make money on its initial release. Offered here is a great half sheet from this unforgettable film. It has pinholes in the corners, fold wear, and a corner bend in the top left, but is otherwise unmarked. The paper has been restored. Any fan of vintage sci-fi would be proud to display this exquisite poster. Very Fine on Paper.
