Two of the most beloved Hollywood movie genres, both horror and sci-fi films enjoyed some of their greatest releases in the fabulous 1950s, with a number of the era’s films venerated today as cult classics. We have an instant collection for those devotees of the forbidden films, with an impressive group of lobby cards totaling 10 and spanning from 1954 to 1964. At the standard dimensions of 11” x 14”, highlights in the group include cards for It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955), Rodan! The Flying Monster (1957) and Universal’s The Creature Walks Among Us (1956), along with three different examples for Tobor the Great (1954). We also have singular examples for The Alligator People (1959), Beast from Haunted Cave (1959), The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) and The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964). Most remain in pleasing condition, with expected wear commensurate with their former use, which may include the odd crease, wrinkle, pinhole or edge tear. There is also varying degrees of toning, with the Beast from Haunted Cave appearing trimmed along the bottom border. We should also note that the example from The Creature Walks Among Us has material loss at the upper and lower right hand corners.
