    Description

    Creature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A, Reynold Brown Artwork.
    With the release of Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein in 1948, the Golden Age of Universal Horror was officially over, largely overshadowed by the very real horrors of World War II, as well as the emerging genre of science fiction. However, in 1954, Universal entered their second age of horror with the release of this landmark film. Based on seventeenth-century drawings of the sea monk and the sea bishop, as well as the Academy's Oscar statuette, the Creature quickly became as well-known as Dracula or Frankenstein and appeared in two sequels earning a solid place in horror film history. Always a popular collectible for movie fans across the board, this excellent half sheet has been professionally restored and had been trimmed by 3/4" all around from the 1.5" border. The interior is very nice, never folded, with just a few bits of touchup applied. Fine on Paper.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
