This is a 14" x 36" US insert poster for the 1955 Bert I. Gordon
53-minute black-and-white film King Dinosaur based on the story
"Beast from Outer Space" by Bert I. Gordon and Al Zimbalist, with
screenplay by Tom Gries and starring William Bryant as Dr. Ralph
Martin. Plot summary: In 1960 four astronauts travel to a planet
called Nova known to have plant life that has just entered the Earth's
solar system. They want to determine if the new planet would be
suitable for a new colony of humans. They encounter an atmosphere
similar to Earth's with comparable vegetation; after taking off their
space suits and making themselves at home, they are attacked by a
crocodile and then have to fight giant insects and other outsized
creatures such as a snake, an alligator, an armadillo, some
prehistoric wooly mammoths and the king dinosaur himself, a giant
iguana the scientists compare to the prehistoric tyrannosaurus rex;
briefly, with no role to play in the film at all, we are also treated
to a glimpse of the bizarre-looking mata mata turtle. It took a week
to make this film using borrowed equipment and stock footage. The
poster, which has become popular among collectors, is quite a bit more
interesting than the film.
This item is available for immediate shipment. It is variously known to the public as a King Dinosaur poster, a King Dinosaur film poster and a King Dinosaur movie poster.
