As our seemingly endless presidential election is finally, mercifully drawing to a close it seemed like a good time to post one of my all-time favorite lobby cards, featuring the great Edward G. Robinson and a fourth-billed Humphrey Bogart.

|Deliverance upside down||September 20, 2016|
I have to give credit for this one to Mark del Costello, a pioneer movie poster collector and unparalleled raconteur. I've always felt that Deliverance was an important movie worth collecting. The standard U.S. 1-Sheet is a bit bland, so I have sought out alternative posters with better designs. This International 41x81 inch 3-sheet has been in my collection for years, and I never once noticed what Mark just pointed out to me. The four men carrying the canoe - if inverted - show THREE MEN CARRYING A BODY! This is very clever, and kudos to the artist, because at the end of the film, the four would-be vacationers have indeed lost one of their own. These two images show the 3-sheet in its normal orientation, and upside down. Disturbing, just like the film:

A recent arrival is this six-sheet billboard for The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Universal's last great monster entry. The artwork is by the renowned Reynold Brown, the man responsible for many of the most iconic 1950s bug-eyed horror and science fiction movie posters. This particular example is completely UNrestored and - other than a handful of very minor flaws - it's in the same condition as when it was printed over 60 years ago. Created in four overlapping panels, this poster was designed to be pasted to a wall, so understandably very few have survived. Measuring 81 by 81 inches (or just under seven feet square) it makes quite an impression on the wall.
