Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster, USA This is the USA release poster for the 1935 UK exploitation film ANGKOR. The film was a documentary in the "Mondo" style and initially consisted of a basic travelogue of footage shot in Cambodia supposedly during WWI telling the story of the sacred monkeys. The footage was actually stock footage, which the film makers spiced up by traveling to Los Angeles and hiring prostitutes from the well-known Selma Street brothel to cavort topless, the footage which was then inserted (they were menaced by a Gorilla in the "story.") Later USA reissues of this film used the titles FORBIDDEN ADVENTURE IN ANGKOR and THE GORILLA WOMAN. One of the finest posters in this tradition. On linen, VERY GOOD-FINE.
