THE WASP WOMAN, 1959. Original science fiction 1 sheet (27 x 41” / 68 x 104 cm) movie theater poster for sale starring; Susan Cabot, Anthony Eisley, Barboura Morris, director Roger Corman, writers Jack Hill (not credited), Leo Gordon (screenplay) and Kinta Zertuche (story line). Also known as “Insect Woman” and ” The Bee Girl”, this incredibly famous poster and film needs little introduction; moreover, this movie was certainly used later in cinema with more than 1 film from the last few decades reusing the concept or being a direct remake; for example, ” Rejuvenatrix”, arguably “Death Becomes Her” and “The Leech Woman” from 1960.
Many aspects play in to the value of this extremely rare 1 sheet movie theater poster; for one, it is considered one of Roger Corman’s top films: the premise plays with the audience’s natural fear of death and secret desire of never ending beauty and the fountain of youth. But really, this author believes this poster is simply put, a spectacular piece of artwork that is itself very typical and possibly one of the most quintessential depictions of science fiction art that any collector of the genre can buy.
A sound investment, this beautiful Wasp Woman 1 sheet sci-fi Roger Corman movie theater poster that is for sale is in investment grade, very fine to near mint condition.
