The Cyclops Poster

Rare UK Quad poster for the scifi-horror movie “The Cyclops” (1957). This poster is hardly ever seen in the market & boasts some typically OTT 50’s design. The poster has also been censored to the upper left. We believe that the text here referred to the film’s “X” rated certificate (note the absence of the usual certification after the film title text). Interestingly, whereas the distributors sought to capitalise on the sensationalist nature of the certification, in more conservative parts of Ireland where presumably this poster was used, the mere mention of an “X” certificate necessitated over-painting. An attractive poster with interesting social comment.

 

The poster is well worn with various conservation tape repairs to the reverse (longest 5”). The over-painting looks like it could be removed with restoration.
