DescriptionCreature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Six Sheet (81" X 79.5") Reynold Brown Artwork.
This horror classic is one of the finest from the era and was an immediate sensation, spawning two top sequels. Richard Carlson, Julia Adams, Richard Denning, and Whit Bissell star as a group of paleontologists who travel to the Amazon and find the famed Black Lagoon and its most unusual inhabitant. The Gil-man was played by Ben Chapman and Ricou Browning. This thrilling poster features Reynold Brown's superb artwork of the Creature and lovely Adams; it is in excellent condition. Displaying only the minor printing imperfections within the image where the ink was not picked up on some creasing, this copy of this large format may be the best condition of its kind. Unrestored other than mounted on linen. Very Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
