Attack of the 50 Foot Woman is a 1958 American low-budget science fiction. The film was a take on other movies that had also featured size-changing humans, namely The Amazing Colossal Man and The Incredible Shrinking Man, but substituting a woman as the protagonist instead of a man. The story concerns the plight of a wealthy heiress whose close encounter with an enormous alien being causes her to grow into a giantess.
Artwork by Reynold Brown, this three-sheet (41''x 81'') is the largest US poster for this movie. There were no US 6 sheets made for this title and this is by far the most impressive format for this film, and is highly sought after by collectors making them extremely difficult to acquire. Other Reynold Brown Poster designs include Ben-Hur (1959) Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) Spartacus (1960), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) to mention just a few.
