    Description

    Superman (Columbia, 1948). One Sheet (27" X 41") Chapter 8 -- "Superman to the Rescue."
    Although Superman, that strange visitor from another planet who came to Earth with powers superior to those of mortal men, was a star of comic books, newspaper strips and animated cartoons, by 1948 he had never appeared in a live action film. That all changed when the energetic and charismatic Kirk Alyn brought him to life on the big screen in the form of a serial. Superman would go on to become one of Columbia's biggest successes, and spawned not only the inevitable sequel, but the popular TV series as well. This highly collectible poster has had touchup to the folds and pinholes in the top corners. There was some chipping in the right border with a diagonal tear in the background extending slightly to the middle horizontal fold. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
