Who Goes There?: 1950'S Horror & Sci-Fi Movie Posters & Lobby Cards
Preis: 18,95 Euro
This book displays a wonderful collection of 1950s and 1960s horror/sci-fi one-sheets and lobby cards. Because many of the illustrations are of two lobby cards from a single film (almost always the title card and the best scene card), the book contains over 450 images of 1950s and early 1960s horror and science fiction movie posters and lobby cards! This is a virtual encyclopedia to just about every horror and science fiction film made during this period, including all the best-known titles! 1950s and early 1960s horror and science fiction is the most popular genre of movie poster collecting, and the posters and lobby cards from those films are the most desirable and sought-after of any movie paper. Perhaps it is because of the often wild and outrageous images that filmmakers used to try to promote these often low-budget movies. Often the posters were far superior to the films they advertised!(Last Gasp)
