    Creature From the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    While Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolf Man were based on literature or legend, Universal's Creature from the Black Lagoon was a wholly original creation, and the last "classic" monster to be considered part of the pantheon. The monster suit was certainly one of the best ever created for film -- largely the work of Universal staffer Millicent Patrick -- and still holds up over fifty years after its original release. Offered here is the scarce B style half sheet with a stunning montage of imagery from this monster classic. There were corner pinholes, a bend in the bottom right corner, and a tear in the right border, all of which has been addressed with professional restoration. Very Fine+ on Paper.
