This is a 14" x 21.25" Belgian hand litho film poster using a design
by Joseph Smith for the 1956 Virgil Vogel film The Mole People
starring John Agar as Dr. Roger Bentley. Plot summary: Deep in the
earth high on a mountain in Mesopotamia lives a race of Sumerian
albinos in a huge underground city, who keep mutant humanoid mole men
as slaves growing mushrooms for them. The ancestors of this albino
race moved underground in ancient times to escape floods. When
archaeologists Dr. Roger Bentley and Dr. Jud Bellamin [Hugh Beaumont]
inadvertently find the city, led to the site by a piece of statuary
that was part of an earthquake landslide, they discover that both the
albinos and their mutant slaves are weakened by the light of a
flashlight as a result of having lived underground for such a long
time. According to Wikipedia the film contains a number of incorrect
representations of Sumerian, Babylonian and Egyptian history,
especially in its images of ancient civilizations and gods.
Archaeologist looking at a skeleton chained to a rock wall: "This one
died as the result of a blow from a heavy blunt instrument. That's a
sign of higher civilization."
