    Description

    Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (Warner Brothers, 1953). Australian Three Sheet (41" X 81"). As a result of an arctic nuclear test, a carnivorous dinosaur thaws out and starts making its way down the East Coast of North America, wreaking havoc in its wake. This was the first of the giant creature features, and Ray Harryhausen's effects were totally believable. Directed by former Production Designer, Art Director Eugene Lourie, who later directed "Colossus of New York" and "The Giant Behemoth." This gorgeous Australian three sheet, which is in three panels, is in spectacular condition and appears to never have been used. The stone litho graphics are superb and are a copy of the very rare U.S. three sheet. Except for the most minor edge wear, this poster would be mint. Very Fine/Near Mint

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
