    Description

    The Wasp Woman (Filmgroup, 1959). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The evil lure of vanity is the theme of this Roger Corman directed thriller in which a cosmetics executive (Susan Cabot) tries to find the face cream of eternal youth. The secret seems to lie in enzymes secreted by wasps, but as this fabulous one sheet shows, her experiment goes seriously awry. Cabot morphs into an aging, predatory Queen Wasp, about to claim her next victim. Great imagery, one of the best posters of the genre, and great condition make this one sheet a must for 1950s creature-feature fans. There has been touchup to the folds, pinholes, and the borders have been airbrushed. Very Fine on Linen.
