    Screaming Skull (American International, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    John Hudson stars as a man trying to drive his wealthy wife insane so he can gain control of her fortune. He accomplishes this by the judicious placement of small skulls all around the house. A fine example of the inverse ratio between the quality of the film and the poster, this one sheet for The Screaming Skull boasts some of the most luridly awesome artwork in the entire American International Pictures stable -- and that's saying something! A must-have for any horror collection. The borders were previously folded back, there are pinholes in the borders, small stains/holes in the Peggy Webber's neck, creasing in the borders, and small crossfold separations. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
