Restoration corrected chips and wear along the borders, pinholes, and minor staining in the image area.
The crab's features have been enhanced to correct minor toning, which is loss of brilliance of color, not loss of color. The poster now displays beautifully.
Probably one of the better images of the sci-fi and horror original movie posters of the glorious 1950s and 1960s. We believe that the original 1957 Half Sheet movie poster.ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS. Original movie posters from the two great decades of sci-fi and horror - the 1950s and 1960s - are always in great demand from fans and collectors alike. We believe that this Half Sheet of ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS is a tad rarer than its counterpart One Sheet (27" x 41"). In addition, this Half Sheet is the only original movie poster of all originals of ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS - which includes the One Sheet, Insert - that has a complete image of the CRAB in the image area.
