DescriptionThe Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (Warner Brothers, 1953). Very Fine- on Linen. Autographed One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
One of most popular creature films of the 1950s, this thriller is based on a short story by Ray Bradbury that ran in the Saturday Evening Post, although in later reprints he changed his title to The Fog Horn. The terrifying result of man's nuclear weapons testing is the release of the Rhedosaurus dinosaur from his frozen home in the Arctic Circle. The genius of Ray Harryhausen brings the fantastic creature to life alongside stars Paul Hubschmid, Paula Raymond, Cecil Kellaway, and Lee Van Cleef. This fantastic one sheet has been signed by both Ray Bradbury and Ray Harryhausen. Restoration has partially addressed mild fold wear and separation, pinholes, and slight creases. There are some unaddressed dust shadows in the bottom and lower side borders. The borders have been mostly airbrushed. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
