A sequel to the hugely popular Creature from the Black Lagoon, Revenge of the Creature was released in 1955 and shot in 3-D, despite the “golden age of 3-D” having reached its peak the year previously. Directed by Jack Arnold, antagonist “Gill-man” is captured and brought to a facility for observation, with the aquatic lizard snatching up scientist and love interest Helen (Lori Nelson) for a city-wide rampage. We have a pair of typically-sized lobby cards for the popular film, with each featuring images of the Gill-man. The first pictures a tussle between the human-like creature with an individual chest-deep in water, while the second example features a wonderful image of Gill-man in full movement underwater.
The lobby card picturing Gill-man underwater exhibits just light wear, with a small edge tear along the top border along with very light creasing and edge wear, while the second lobby card shows fairly heavy toning along with foxing and a few pinholes. There are also a few small edge tears along with a crease along the left hand border, with a handwritten notation on the reverse.
Starring John Agar, Lori Nelson, John Bromfield, Nestor Paiva, Grandon Rhodes, Clint Eastwood, and Diane DeLaire.
