Allied Artists Original Six Sheet Poster (81x81) Very Good Condition Folded, Assembled

Allied Artists Original Six Sheet Poster (81x81) for the film KILLER LEOPARD (1954) starring Johnny Sheffield, Beverly Garland, Rory Mallinson, Roy Glenn, Charles Stevens and Bill Walker. The movie was directed by Ford Beebe and was the 11th film in a series of 12 very popular pulp films, beginning in 1949, starring Johnny Sheffield as Bomba, the Jungle Boy. Sheffield was a successful child actor who had appeared on Broadway and had been in several films. In the late thirties his father arranged an interview with MGM, who were looking for a young lad to play the role of Boy in the Tarzan movies. Johnny Weismuller himself chose Johnny Sheffield to play Tarzan's adopted son in TARZAN FINDS A SON (1939). Sheffield went to on to play in two more Tarzan films at MGM and followed Weismuller to RKO for additional Tarzan movies. After outgrowing the role of Boy, the teenaged Sheffield went on to portray Bomba the Jungle Boy at Allied Artists. KILLER LEOPARD is also the sixth film of actress Beverly Garland. There would be one more film with Johnny Sheffield after this one, LORD OF THE JUNGLE (1955.) Sheffield quit films soon after this movie and went on to a successful career in business. A wonderful pulp adventure poster, the six sheet for this film is quite rare, never having been auctioned in the U.S. This is the only example of the poster we have seen. This poster was used in a theater and the four panels which comprise the poster have already been assembled. There is tear in the poster which has been repaired with paper-tape. Colors are bright, but there are also minor flaws in the paper and the poster shows modest signs of general wear. We have graded the condition as Good to Very Good and prospective buyers should consider the poster average used condition. The poster is not in danger of immediate deterioration, but we believe it would look great if linen-backed. We have additional photos which show the paper in greater detail. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an original U.S. six sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
