DescriptionCreature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.25" X 55"). Edmondo De Amicis Artwork.
An icon in the realm of cinematic horror, Jack Arnold's Gill-Man stands tall among some of the most popular monsters in Universal's impressive repertoire, considered an equal to such longtime favorites as Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man. Received with widespread praise, this dark tale of an Amazonian expedition-turned-nightmare has thrilled viewers for decades since its initial release and is the reigning king of 1950s creature features. This Italian 2 - fogli leaves the viewer with just as spectacular an impression as any of its American counterparts, featuring excellent artwork by Edmondo De Amicis. An absolute must-have for fans of the darker side of cinema and 50's classics, no serious collector could have a complete collection without this gem of a poster. There has been professional touchup at the folds and pinholes in the borders. The poster had a sliver of paper loss at the lower left corner and there were a couple small tears and chips in the borders and folds. There has also been touchup to a printing irregularity from top right border through Richard Carlson's credit, but this irregularity did not include any paper loss.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
