BEAST WITH A MILLION EYES! – MYSTERY OF THE BLACK JUNGLE

£49.50

Original British 11 inch x 8 1/8 inch Trade Advert for the 1956 Anglo Amalgamated Film Distributor’s releases of the 1955 David Kramarsky & Roger Corman Horror Movie THE BEAST WITH A MILLION EYES! starring Paul Birch, Lorna Thayer and Dona Cole

plus the 1954 Gian Paolo Callegari & Ralph Murphy Adventure MYSTERY OF THE BLACK JUNGLE starring Lex Barker, Fiorella Mari and Paul Muller.

A small but resourceful production/distribution company, Anglo-Amalgamated was set up in 1945 by two energetic and astute businessmen, Nat Cohen and Stuart Levy. They began by making low-budget thrillers for the bottom half of the double bill, and, gambling shrewdly on new talents, showed themselves cleverly attuned to changing market demands, until, in 1969, they were swallowed up in ABPC/EMI. Their earliest productions were half-hour features such as The Drayton Case (d. Ken Hughes, 1953), with plotlines which attested to the unceasing vigilance of Scotland Yard, and with portentous introductions by Edgar Lustgarten. By the ’60s, these had given way to hour-long thrillers drawn chiefly from the works of Edgar Wallace and made at the austere studios at Merton Park.

The advert is in very good condition.
