Bride of the Monster (Filmmakers Releasing, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
Doctor Eric Varnoff (Bela Lugosi) has a dream: to create a race of supermen using the newly-harnessed powers of atomic radiation. When newspaperwoman Janet Lawton (Loretta King) stumbles upon the doctor's mad scheme, it takes all her resources to keep from becoming Varnoff's latest victim. Director Edward D. Wood's biggest budget film, and the only one that proved financially successful in its original release, this picture also marked Lugosi's last starring role in a feature film. As with all of Wood's legendary films, paper is extremely scarce and highly collectible.

Some Trivia:
According to Paul Marco, Edward D. Wood Jr. thought that Bela Lugosi's memory might not be very good so for Lugosi's huge speech in Bride of the Monster, Wood had the prop man make cue cards. Lugosi, upset, insisted he didn't need cue cards and he would "memorize it." Wood still insisted on the cue cards telling Lugosi, "We have to be safe." Bela Lugosi went to Paul Marco for help. He had Marco promise not to show him the cue cards during the scene. Paul Marco held the cards at his side the whole time and Lugosi never looked over once. Bela Lugosi gave a sensational performance and the whole crew got up and applauded

There are some great reviews at the IMDB link below. I was quite surprised that Bela Lugosi actually gets great praise for his role in this, his final film.
