El Extrano Caso del Hombre y la Bestia (released in the U.S. as "The Strange Case of the Man and the Beast"), the 1951 Mario Soffici Argentinean fantasy horror thriller (loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") starring Ana Maria Campoy, Jose Cibrian, Rafael FrontauraFederico Mansilla, and Olga Zubarry
Artist: Anselmo Ballester
Important Added Info: Note that offered here is the actual original artwork painted by Anselmo Ballester for one of the Italian posters for this Argentinean horror movie. Not only have we never auctioned the Italian poster that this art was used for, but we have never auctioned ANY Italian poster (just one photobusta) from this movie. Italian posters by Ballester are among the most desirable and expensive Italian posters there are, and his original artwork is almost never offered for sale or at auction! A knowledgeable collector tells us that this artwork was used on the Italian one-panel poster (2 Fogli). Finally, note that this original art is on lightweight poster board, but it can't possibly be rolled, and must be sent in a large flat package.

Condition: very good. The art has some faint smudges and scuffs in the solid black areas, and a fine vertical scuff mark in the middle left of the image, running through the man's eye and entering his nose (see our image). Otherwise, it is in nice condition!
