DescriptionAttack of the Crab Monsters (Allied Artists, 1957). Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint. Insert (14" X 36"). Albert Kallis Artwork.
Ace creature-feature director Roger Corman capitalizes on the H-bomb hysteria of the 1950s by setting this tale on a remote island designated for weapons testing. Science meets nature, with horrifying results. Errant radiation spawns mind reading, mutant crabs bent on destroying the group of scientists who have landed on the island to investigate the disappearance of the previous team. Beauty is no match for the beast on this spectacular insert, with a terrified but lovely Pamela Duncan in the clutches of one angry crustacean. Posters for this title remain some of the most popular from the era of the Drive-In Creature Feature. This unrestored insert is in wonderfully clean condition and shows to be virtually unused. The poster has a very faint stain in the bottom border, and a tiny tear within the right border.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
