HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER (1958) original linen-backed US one sheet movie poster
HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER (1958) original linen-backed US one sheet movie poster. Poster measures standard US one-sheet size of approx 27 x 41 inches. Linen measures approx 28.25 x 43.5 inches. Folded prior to linen-backing. Great looking gory artwork on this poster for the 1958 A. Horror thriller about a mad make-up artist who uses his monster creations to wreak revenge upon the studio bosses who sacked him. How to Make a Monster’ was a follow-up to’I was a Teenage Werewolf’ and’I was a Teenage Frankenstein’, and both characters are used in this film, albeit through the guise of actors made-up to look like monsters on a killing spree. The film is notable for the many knowing references to other horror films, especially in the final reel where the film changes from black and white into colour, and many of the actual screen-used masks and props from other famous horror movies are used in the final fire scene. Poster overall condition – very good/excellent. Displays to great effect. The colours remain bold and vibrant. Poster has been linen-backed in the’American’ style, meaning that it has had some touch-up and restoration work done to it. I have taken several photos so that all areas of the poster can be viewed in detail. Please also see photos for your own appraisal of the general condition. Any questions or further photos required please ask. PACKAGING FOR POSTING INFORMATION. All the items I send will be very carefully packaged using strong and secure posting materials. I know people are very concerned about how something they’ve just bought will be packaged – especially if it’s valuable and rare. I also know all too well the disappointment of receiving something damaged in the post because of lazy, cheap and shoddy packaging. So, therefore to assure my buyers that their goods will be carefully packed, I will explain in detail below how I prepare and package my items. FLAT ITEMS such as folded posters, lobby cards, press books, etc, are put into polythene sleeves and then placed between two pieces of THICK card before being sealed in a’Do Not Bend’ envelope. The extra card will make this package an absolute minimum of 10 mm thick to prevent bending. ROLLED POSTERS are placed inside a sleeve of polythene tubing and then put into a 3 inch diameter tube which has strong 2.5 mm thick walls. The poster will be cushioned at both ends inside the tube with tissue paper or bubble wrap, etc, to prevent movement. The ends of the tube will be tape-sealed on the outside. LINEN-BACKED POSTERS and irregular sized or shaped posters will be rolled in kraft paper, and then bubble-wrapped. Depending on the type of poster the tube may be anything between a 3 inch and 6 inch diameter. All tubes will have minimum 2.5 mm thick walls. OTHER MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS such as collectable figures, props, etc, will be bubble-wrapped and cushioned with crushed paper or something similar inside a sturdy cardboard box. ANYTHING SEALED inside any package (polythene sleeve, cardboard, bubble-wrap, etc) is done with masking tape. I find this is strong enough to seal securely, but the low stickiness of it means it is easy to remove, and therefore will not cause any damage by accidentally sticking to the item. Multiple items of the same type I. It may do at checkout, but I don’t know for sure. This item is in the category “Films & TV\Film Memorabilia\Posters\Originals – US One Sheets\Pre-1970″.
