    Description

    The Incredible Shrinking Man (Universal International, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Based on a novel by noted science fiction author Richard Matheson, this is one of the more thoughtful sci-fi movies of the 1950s. When Scott Carey (Grant Williams) is exposed to a strange cloud, he begins to shrink, growing smaller and smaller with each passing day. Soon, house cats and even spiders become giant, implacable enemies, leading Carey on a journey of survival and discovery. A perennially favorite film, this one sheet, with its striking Reynold Brown image of Carey being menaced by his pet cat, has always been a favorite of genre collectors. This particular example has light edge wear in the top border, an extra crease at the middle fold line, and some crinkling in the lower right. None of these minor flaws are particularly distracting, making this a perfect addition to any collection. Very Fine.
