Invaders from Mars
20th Century Fox - 1955
Very Fine+

American One Sheet 27" x 41"

The science-fiction, red-scare boom of the 1950's produced many films about aliens invading earth, and many more involving radioactive mutants. This film is unique in that it is told from the perspective of a twelve year old astronomy buff (Jimmy Hunt), who sees a flying saucer land just beyond his backyard. The spacecraft releases evil aliens that start brainwashing the residents of his small town. The artwork on this beautiful one sheet is far superior in design to that of typical science-fiction posters of the day. This tri-folded 1955 re-release one sheet (the actual plates used to print the 1953 first release poster, were used again, only with better inks the second time around. These 1955 posters are nicer than the 1953 counterpart) is in "out of this world" shape with saturated color and clean borders. There are a few tiny tears in the margins and some minor wear in the lower right corner area. A faint vertical crease from a past misfold is present in the left half. An exceptional specimen from a very tough to find and sought after title. Very Fine+.
