The Amazing Colossal Man (American International, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41").
A collectible favorite, this poster boasts stunning artwork by the great Albert Kallis. When Lt. Col. Glenn Manning (Glenn Langan) tries to rescue a downed flyer during a plutonium bomb test, he is exposed to radiation. Manning survives, but soon begins to grow to gargantuan size, eventually embarking on a rampage through glittery downtown Las Vegas. Signs of light handling include pinholes in the top corners, a tear in the right border with tape on the verso, and light wrinkling. Although not technically part of the "big bug genre" it certainly falls into that fine 1950s tradition where radiation changes the size of everything! Fine/Very Fine.
