    Description

    Creature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Insert (14" X 36") Reynold Brown Artwork.
    Director Jack Arnold terrified audiences with this prehistoric creature (an amphibious beast that came equipped with pulsating gills and fearsome webbed talons), who lived in a murky uncharted tributary of the Amazon. The last of the great Universal Monsters, and perhaps the best, the Creature was a tremendous success in its day, and went on to spawn two sequels. The insert format features artwork by Reynold Brown, and this example has had professional touchup to the folds and small tears in the borders, some of which extend into the background. There is some airbrushing in the borders towards the top, and the poster still shows some mild unaddressed color fading. Once folded, this insert looks great after having its folds pressed out. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
