attack-of-the-50ft-woman attack-of-the-50ft-womanAttack of the 50ft Woman is a 1958 Science-fiction film. The story concerns the plight of Nancy Archer, a wealthy heiress whose close encounter with an enormous alien being causes her to grow into a giantess. She uses her new size and power to seek revenge against her philandering husband Harry and his mistress, Honey Parker.

This is one of my all time favorite posters, there's so much going on in the shot. She has a car in one hand as she straddles a highway overpass, while reaching down her other hand to grab another car that has wrecked just below her. Or, maybe she's reaching for one of the guys down below, trying to find a man who's not intimidated by her stature and forcefulness. What I really like is while everyone else runs for their lives, one guy just stands there, looking up her skirt. Sources say this is a young Larry Flint, however this has not been verified.
