DescriptionThe Incredible Shrinking Man (Universal International, 1957). Folded, Very Fine-. Three Sheet (41" X 79"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
This is the story of Scott Carey (Grant Williams), a man inadvertently exposed to radiation, who finds himself growing smaller and smaller with no end in sight! As he continues to shrink, formerly benign things, like his pet cat, suddenly become large and menacing. Superb special effects, including Carey's life-or-death battle with a spider, enhance this film adapted by screenwriter Richard Matheson from his own novel. This thrilling three sheet is considered by most to be the best poster from the title with Reynold Brown artwork depicting Carey's battle with his cat. Signs of usage include light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, and soft creases. There are a couple of small crossfold chips, and the poster has some bleedthrough from writing and ink stamps on the verso. There is also a small sticker on the verso with a bit of adhesive bleedthrough. Folded, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
