Description:
Los Angeles: American-International Pictures, 1958. Draft script for the 1958 film, here under the working title "The Spider." SIGNED by director Bert I. Gordon. With manuscript pencil annotations throughout. Fodder for for an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (Season 4, Episode 13, Sept 14, 1991), where Gordon was resurrected as a master of bad taste. Small-town teenagers and their high school science teacher fight a gigantic mutant spider. The last of the "giant creature" films directed by Gordon from the 1950s. In an attempt to ride on the success of "The Fly," which debuted a few months earlier in 1958, the film's working title "The Spider" replaced "Earth vs. the Spider" on most of its promotional materials. The screen title, however, was never officially changed. Yellow titled wrappers, rubber-stamped copy No. 48. Title page integral to the distribution page, with receipt intact, dated April 29, 1958, with credits for screenwriters Laszlo Gorog and George Worthing Yates, and story… Read More

Description:
Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1958. Final script for the 1958 film. Missing page 70, likely as used or issued. Based on a 1957 short story by George Langelaan, about a scientist who is transformed into a grotesque, human-fly hybrid after his experiments with a matter-transportation machine go very wrong. A breakthrough hit for actor Vincent Price as well as director Kurt Neumann, although Neumann would pass away a month after the film's release. Basis for David Cronenberg's 1986 film, and its subsequent sequel, "The Fly II," in 1989. Set and shot partly on location in Montreal. Housed in a custom navy clamshell box. Blue titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 65 and production No. 792, dated FEBRUARY 27, 1958.

Description:
Universal City: Universal Pictures, 1945. Vintage reference photograph of actor Lon Chaney Jr. as The Wolf Man for the film "House of Dracula" (Erle C. Kenton, 1945), getting his makeup applied by legendary Universal Pictures makeup artist Jack Pierce, circa 1940s. From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler. Chaney appeared as The Wolf Man in five Universal monster mash-up films throughout the 1940s: "The Wolf Man" (1941), "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man" (1943), "House of Frankenstein" (1944), "House of Dracula" (1945), and "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" (1948). The laborious special effects makeup for the character took five to six hours to apply, and an hour to remove. 10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus overall, with brief wear to the corners.
