    Superman and the Mole Men (Lippert, 1951). Banner (24" X 82"). Drilling "the World's largest oil well" ends up driving some of the radioactive Mole Men to the surface! This movie starred George Reeves as the Man of Steel, and Phyllis Coates as Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane. This fantastic silk screened banner features a large color photo of the stars and is one of the most attractive rare pieces from this feature film. More often than not, at this period of banner manufacturing, the photos would often be black and white or merely a simple decorative motif silk screened on to the banner with the title. This is quite the attractive rarity, and made more so by the reversed colors on Superman's costume! Other than minor wear on the right vertical border and the most minimal wear in edges and image, this banner displays magnificently and has no restoration. Rolled, in Excellent condition.
