DescriptionCreature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B, Reynold Brown Artwork.
The last of the classic Universal Monsters crawled on screen in this sensational 1954 film. Discovered by a crew of Amazonian explorers, the Creature went on to terrorize audiences in two thrilling underwater sequels. The picture was made in shocking 3-D, but only the window cards capitalized on this sensation. This half sheet, the rarer of the two, designed by Reynold Brown, features some of the best art used in the campaign. After restoration the poster no longer displays edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, small chips, and minor tears. There was a moderate tear in the upper right border and the borders have been airbrushed. Post-restoration issues include edge wear and creases in the top border, as well as faint smudges. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
