Forever remembered as one of Hollywood’s most venerated and cherished Universal monsters, “Gill-man” first appeared in a comedic TV short titled Abbott and Costello Meet the Creature from the Black Lagoon, prior to the release of the landmark 1954 picture Creature from the Black Lagoon. Revenge of the Creature followed in 1955, with a second sequel entitled The Creature Walks Among Us released in 1956. We have a typically sized window card for the first sequel, Revenge of the Creature, and it’s been signed by Ricou Browning (Gill-man underwater) and actor Brett Halsey. With wonderful period graphics, Gill-man is pictured rampaging through the city, with female captive securely in tow. Halsey and Browning have both signed just above the credits, Halsey in blue, Browning in black, with both signatures displaying well.
Affixed at some point to cardboard backing, toning is present, especially along the left hand border, with three large horizontal creases evenly spaced. Additional creases are also present at corners, with all colours still bright and vibrant. Boasting stunning Reynold Brown artwork, we should note that the presence of the 3-D logo along the bottom left is rarely ever seen, making this an extremely rare variant.
