DescriptionThe Astounding She Monster (American International, 1958). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Albert Kallis Artwork.
A delightful 1950s image with its bombshell-meets-monster motif, the posters for this science fiction film are arguably more engaging than the film itself. Shirley Kilpatrick stars as the mute, yet fierce, blonde alien with a deadly, radium-laced touch. She traps wise-cracking kidnappers Kenne Duncan, Ewing Miles Brown, and Jeanne Tatum in a secluded cabin in the woods, along with their victims Marilyn Harvey and Robert Clarke. A staple in any science fiction collection, this piece displays slight fold wear and separations, pinholes, some creasing, and small paper lifts. There are minor chips and tears, faint unobtrusive staining, as well as soft surface rippling.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
