Creature from the Black Lagoon (framed) Price: £1,650 | Size: US insert - 14"X36" | Grade: Fine (laminated) | Year: 1954 The Creature From the Black Lagoon is an all time horror classic and the "gillman" is now included in the pantheon of classic movie monsters -along with Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman. This poster is from the film's first release in 1954. It has very strong, bright colour and was in exceptional condition when it was laminated in the 1970's (lamination was a museum conservation method in the 70's but has now been superceded by linen backing). With similar condition examples fetching £5,000 to £10,000, it would be true to say that the value has been compromised by the lamination process despite the fact that it's almost impossible to spot when the item is framed and glazed. N.B. This item now framed although photo is taken out of frame. This is a unique opportunity to buy at less than a quarter of the usual price. This is a clearance item on consignment from the estate of a large collector.
