    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. There are pinholes in the top border, small edge tears on the right border, smudging on the corners and right border, and tape stains on the corners. There are scratches across the swimming image of Adams and the background, a red pen mark on the lower border, tape residue in the corners and archival tape on the verso of the borders. The iconic artwork is by famed poster artist Reynold Brown. Folded, Fine+.
