|The picture shows a view of this Unused 1955 Creature From The Black Lagoon Revenge of the Creature Movie Ad Mat Mold. The ad mat is not dated but it is from the 1955 movie. This is a mold in which lead is poured to create a thin metal negative image that is then mounted on a wooden block for printing. Advertising is no longer being made or printed like this. The ad mat is like a miniature 3-D poster and would look nice framed, or you could still use it and make print blocks from it. The print block would have been used to print on movie pages in newspapers, in magazines, or in the movie theater programs. It is made of a thick compressed paper board. This admat has a movie scene image of the Creature with chains, a pretty lady, and other people in the background. It is marked as follows:|
NEW THRILL WONDER!
