DescriptionAbbott and Costello Go to Mars (Universal International, 1953). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Three Sheet (41" X 79").
Leave it to Bud Abbott and Lou Costello to not go where the title says they will. Instead, they head to New Orleans in a rocket (where they THINK they're on Mars, thanks to all the Mardi Gras outfits), and then on to Venus, which is a world of women only. Featuring great "out of this world" graphics of Bud and Lou and the Miss Universe Contest beauties. The poster shows slight edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, small tears, and a few minor chips. There is some smudging, a tear from the top edge into the first "B" of "Abbott," and a tear from the bottom border into the lower credits. The poster also has a printing irregularity in the lower left background.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
