    Description

    Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (Allied Artists, 1958). Very Fine+ on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 78.5"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
    Reynold Brown's famous image of a rampaging giantess is literally larger than life on this incredibly scarce three sheet, a format at the top of many sci-fi collectors' lists. As the studio never produced a six sheet for the film, the three sheet is the largest and most scarce paper ever issued for the title, making it by far the most impressive format printed. Despite having a low budget typical of 1950s sci-fi films, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman enjoyed enough popularity among its cult audience to warrant discussion of a sequel with higher production values. In fact, it could be said that its shoestring budget, combined with an absurdity only seen in the campiest of sci-fi plots, contributes to the picture's quirky charm. Professional touchup has been applied to parts of the folds and misfolds, a few minor tears and chips, small fold separations, and pinholes. A few very faint smudges are still visible. The borders have been partially airbrushed. This exquisite poster could be considered a cornerstone perfect for any sci-fi collection.
