Monsters & Maidens: a Film Poster Collection

If there’s one visual cliché in vintage film posters that drives us crazy, it’s a maiden in distress in the arms of a giant monster hauling her up a building, through a cemetery, across the beach of a robot planet, or whatever. Swann Gallery Auctions have rounded up a massive collection of posters for films ranging from Ed Wood and Bella Lugosi classics, to A-list favorites like Dracula and Frankenstein, to B-list oddities like the one about the aforementioned robot planet. See your favorite masculine brutes straining their unnatural muscle! Check out your passively flailing leading ladies! Stick around for a totally random maiden-on-monster style poster of Paul Morrissey’s Trash, and a bit of a surprise at the very end.
