MGM Original French Grande (47x63) Folded Fine Plus Condition Art by Roger Soubie
Original MGM French Grande Poster (47x63) for the Eugene Lourie sci-fi cult classic, GORGO (1961) starring Bill Travers, William Sylvester, Vincent Winter, and Christopher Rhodes. When a baby sea monster is captured off the Irish coast and put in a London circus, Gorgo (the English "Godzilla) escapes and wreaks havoc on the city. But when Gorgo's mother comes to reclaim her baby, the excitement and destruction get notched up considerably. Lourie directed other giant monster films and knew how to make the action sequences fast and exciting. The production values were definitely better than the Japanese monster movies. Both of the monsters - mother and son - look reasonably realistic. Solid acting by all the main characters and a good musical score further enhance the film's effectiveness. This is one of the best French monster posters, in our opinion. A strking coloration and terrific art by Roger Soubie make this poster a winner. This poster is genrally in very fine shape, but there are some minor distresses. Color is vivid. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is the authentic, vintage French 47x63 for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
