“Clawing Monster From A Lost Age strikes from the Amazon’s forbidden depths !”
One of the classic Universal Monsters and a classic horror movie poster “Creature From the Black Lagoon”. With original one-sheets costing thousands of pounds this S2 Art Group recreation is a fine and genuinely rare alternative produced to an extremely high standard. S2 bought 100-year-old lithograph presses, completely refurbished them, and created stone slabs that allowed them to make nearly perfect replicas of this classic movie poster. They were printed in exactly the same way the posters were originally printed, re-creating them down to the finest detail within the art, and even including the tiny writing from the bottom of the poster. Printed in 2002 each has the name of the person who prepared the plates and the date of the printing in the bottom border of the art. It is super high quality and measures the same as a regular one-sheet 27″ x 41″ (69 x 104 cm). Supplied with its original S2 Certificate of Authenticity it represents an incredible looking item of movie memorabilia.
Trivia: When William Alland was a member of Orson Welles‘ Mercury Theatre, he heard famed Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa tell of a legend about a humanoid creature that supposedly lived in South America. That legend became the origin of this film.
