"Tarantula", 1955Original Vintage Movie Poster One Sheet
An amazing Sci-Fi movie poster from this 1955 classic. This is the very rare 40x60" version with much different graphics and artwork, than the typical one sheet that appears on the market more frequently. The incorporation of photo graphics of the main stars with the animated artwork of the monster, makes this a most unusual, visually appealing and highly desirable find for the serious collector. We have never acquired this piece before and have only seen it appear on the market once or twice in the past 25 years. And, the other two were in much inferior condition than this one. The chance we will ever acquire this piece again, particularly in this condition, is highly unlikely. So if you have any interest, sitting on the fence, may result in a painful loss.
Tarantula (Universal International, 1955). Poster (40" X 60"). Science Fiction.A memorable entry in the giant monster genre so popular in the 1950s, this exciting film stars Leo G. Carroll as a scientist doing research in gigantism. When one of his experimental spiders escapes and grows to enormous size, the entire surrounding population is threatened. Sharp-eyed viewers will recognize a very young Clint Eastwood in the climax of the movie, as the jet squadron leader who attacks the giant spider. Offered here is a wonderful poster for this fan-favorite film, brilliantly presented in dazzling day-glo colors. The poster had pinholes in the corners and in the image area, punch holes in the top corners, a minor corner chip in the bottom right, and small tears in the top and bottom borders. Professional linen backing has expertly addressed all these issues, resulting in a poster that will be the pride of any collection. Excellent + condition on linen.
