    Description

    One Million B.C. (United Artists, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The #1 box office attraction of 1940, this prehistoric take on Romeo and Juliet stars Victor Mature a the leader of the brutal Rock People, who falls in love with Carole Landis from the more peaceful Shell Tribe. The special effects in the film were so well done that they were used in numerous pictures well into the 1960s. Raquel Welch and John Richardson later remade the picture in 1966, one of Welch's most famous roles. Professionally restored, this one sheet once showed fold wear with small chips, extra vertical folds, pinholes, and small border tears. There was a slight trim along the left and right edges, as well as a 0.75" trim along the bottom border. The borders and title have been airbrushed. Fine+ on Linen.
