    Description

    The Creature Walks Among Us (Universal International, 1956). One Sheet (27" X 41"). If Universal didn't create the monster movie genre in the 1930s, they certainly perfected it. That genre died down for a few years, after 1948s "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein," but the studio revived the concept successfully in 1954 when they released "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," a landmark picture that helped to spur the "Monster Revival" of the 1950s. The Gill Man's debut was such a blockbuster that it spawned two sequels, "Revenge of the Creature," and "The Creature Walks Among Us," in which scientist Dr. William Barton (Jeff Morrow) attempts to "humanize" the Creature through surgery, with predictable results. All three films feature the spectacular Creature makeup, designed by Bud Westmore for the original film, which has become one of the most recognizable monsters in media history. All paper associated with the Gill Man is highly desirable, and this classic one sheet is no exception. This particular copy displays pinholes in the corners and several within the image and borders. The corners have been folded back, leaving crease lines, as has the bottom border, in which case the crease line extends into the credits. The colors on this beauty are fresh and fabulous, however, giving it a great deal of eye appeal. Don't pass up this opportunity to acquire this B-movie beauty! Fine-.
