    The Fly (20th Century Fox, 1958). British Quad (30" X 40"). One of the most memorable sci-fi films of the 1950s, this terrifying film teamed horror icon Vincent Price with David "Al" Hedison, soon to find even greater fame as Commander Lee Crane in Irwin Allen's television classic Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Herein, Hedison plays an impatient scientist, whose experiments in matter transference come to a horrible end. No one who has seen this classic film can forget the plaintive "Help me!" heard at the end, as dramatically illustrated in this terrific quad. An enormously popular film, the American paper for this film is somewhat lackluster, making this the piece to have for any fan of this undeniable classic. The poster had fold wear, pinholes in the corners, and a small tear in the left edge. Additionally, all the borders were folded back at some point, resulting in extra fold lines at all the edges. These are minor considerations, however, and do nothing to detract from the glorious beauty of this incredible piece. This copy is the very rare style which replaces the "For Adults Only" tag with " 100 pounds to the first person..." Very Fine- on Linen.
