If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is a VERY unusual one-sheet! The producer of "One Million Years B.C.", Sir James Carreras, had the idea that there might be an unknown gorgeous girl who could play the lead part in his next movie "Creatures the World Forgot", and he had the wackier idea of plastering special one-sheets giving that information (together with an image of Raquel Welch in her cave girl costume), along with applications, in movie theaters all over the U.S., with the hope that some girl somewhere would turn in an application and end up being the star of the movie! The taglines on this special one-sheet read as follows: "How would you like to be 'the screen's hottest new sex symbol'?"; "Here's how: Sir James Carreras, the producer who made the lady on the left an international star in 'One Million Years B.C.', is now on a worldwide talent search for the next Raquel appear in his next Hammer Production for Columbia Pictures, 'Creatures the World Forgot.'"; "If you have the necessary qualifications (or if you know someone who does) Fill in the application available free at this theatre...and take the first step to stardom!". Of course, we know that the star of "Creatures the World Forgot" ended up being very sexy Norwegian Julie Ege, and she had been in movies for two years, and certainly did not get the part after seeing this special one-sheet!
