    Description

    Creature from the Black Lagoon (Universal International, 1954). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B, Reynold Brown Artwork. The last of the classic Universal Monsters crawled on screen in this sensational 1954 film. Discovered by a crew of Amazonian explorers, the Creature went on to terrorize audiences in two thrilling underwater sequels. This half sheet, the rarer of the two, designed by Reynold Brown, featured some of the best art used in the campaign and was used on the large-format six sheet. This copy was never folded and had airbrushing to all of the borders and touchup to a crease from the left border into the Creature's head. There were some small distress lines in the poster and a couple of small spots of touchup, one being in Julia Adams' body. All of the work was done beautifully, and the poster now displays like new.
