Creature From The Black Lagoon. Aka: La Mujer Y El Monstruo (Spain). (1954) Directed by Jack Arnold. Description: Original Spanish Herald Poster.
Condition: Good / Fine, light fold lines. Poster Year: 1956 [Spanish - Printed by Marti Y Mari Barcelona]. Note that when Spanish heralds have printing on the back, we picture both sides, but when they are blank on the back, we only picture the front. Size: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (14 x 22 cm) Approx. Note that this Spanish herald is quite a bit larger than most Spanish heralds (it is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", whereas most of them are in the 3 1/2" x 5" to 4" x 6" range).
Perhaps they made the herald extra large because they knew it would be a. Also note that when Spanish heralds have printing on the back, we picture both sides, but when they are blank on the back, we only picture the front. Please note that Spanish heralds, like U. Heralds, were printed in very large quantities, and then sent to individual theaters in Spain, and they would sometimes have the backs of them overprinted with their theater name and specific play dates.
But because a movie might play in Spain for a period of a year or two (traveling from theater to theater), there is no guarantee that the date overprinted on the back of the herald is the same as the date that the herald was first printed (and the date that the movie first played in Spain). Therefore, we don't list the date overprinted on the back of a herald as the date of the herald unless we know that was when the movie first played in Spain. If we believe the herald was printed earlier, then we use that date. If it is important to you that the date on the herald is the date the movie first opened, then please look at our image of the back of this herald to see if there is a different date printed on it.
