    The Bride and the Beast (Allied Artists, 1958). Three Sheet (41" X 77.5").
    Scripted by the infamous Edward D. Wood, Jr., this movie has to be seen to be believed. A young woman (Charlotte Austin) marries a man (Lance Fuller) who keeps a pet gorilla in his basement. When the beauty meets the beast, they find there's an unnaturally strong chemistry between them, due to the fact that the woman was actually a gorilla in a past life. And from there, the plot continues down the path of weirdom. Written at the height of Wood's considerable creative powers, this picture boasts all of those special touches associated with the driving force behind Glen or Glenda and Plan Nine from Outer Space. Display this piece with pride, as it has benefited from touchup to a torn pinhole in the left border, small hole in the right border, pinholes in the right border and bottom right background, a tear in the bottom border into the credits, tears in the left border, fold wear, and small paper loss by the gorilla's left eye. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
