    Description

    The Astounding She Monster (American International, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Collection of Wade Williams.
    AIP decided to combine two cinematic genres, the gangster film with science-fiction to create one of the 1950s cult classics. In this drive-in epic, a gang of criminals kidnaps a wealthy heiress intending to hold her for ransom while hiding out in a secluded cabin in the woods. While there, they encounter an alien from outer-space whose touch is extremely lethal. And just as this poster promises, the alien is a woman who wears a skintight metallic silver suit, wears high-heels, lipstick and the most amazing eyebrows in cinematic history. The poster is widely regarded as one of the best from the 1950s sci-fi craze. The poster has some airbrushing in the borders and some very minor color touch up to the centerpoints and foldlines. From the Collection of Wade Williams. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
