THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, 1954. This Original French Medium (23/33″) Theatre Movie poster is from the 1962 Re-release in France and is Linen Backed. This Jack Arnold Universal 3D picture is starring; Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning, director Jack Arnold and writer Harry Essex.
This poster has been confused in the past as an original release, however, there are 2 important clues to indicate this is from the re-release. The first is the visa de Censure tag on the left border. Visa de censure marks didnt begin in France until 1960. The second is that the printer of this poster, “M. Landais”, only printed French movie posters in 1962. Both clues are sourced here (Learnaboutmovieposters).
This poster is in fine condition showing only minor iron oxide staining throughout that leaves a nice petina to the overall investment piece. In addition, this poster has been linen backed in our paper conservation studio.
