    Description

    Tarantula (Universal International, 1955). One Sheet (27" X 41") Reynold Brown Artwork.
    It was one of the best of the "giant bug" films so popular in the 1950s and in this outing, it wasn't the usual radiation that created the monster or a mad scientist, but an experiment gone awry by a well intentioned scientist (Leo G. Carroll). This poster with artwork by Reynold Brown is absolutely lurid with the giant spider attacking a city and running off with a woman in it's fangs. What more could a fan of the 1950s science fiction films want? Reynold Brown, known for creating some of the best posters of the era, created this masterpiece. There was touchup to fold wear in the lower vertical fold, minor crossfold chips, pinholes into the interior, and a vertical tear in the right side of the center horizontal fold. The two lower corners and a piece at the left border were once detached, but have since been restored. There has been some partial airbrushing in the borders. Fine+ on Linen.
