    Description

    Curse of the Demon (Columbia, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The fantastical monster on this one sheet was based on a woodcut print, hundreds of years old, from a book on demonology. It's one of the scariest monsters in film history, but we have producer Hal E. Chester (Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, 1953) to thank for it, not the director, Jacques Tourneur, who only inserted onscreen monster footage into the film at the producer's "do-it-or-else" insistence. Some think it deplorable that the screenwriter/director vision was not served, while other top film historians and critics think it one of the best monsters ever put on film! This bright copy of a desirable one sheet has fold separation on the top quarter of the vertical fold and has been supported with archival tissue tape on the verso. Fine+.
