Description

    Destination Moon (Pathe', 1950). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Eighteen years before Neil Armstrong took "one small step for man...," producer George Pal assembled an impressive crew, including award-winning author Robert Heinlein and legendary space artist Chesley Bonestell, to make an exciting space race film, and, at the same time, educate the public as to the realities of that race. Unlike most science fiction pictures, which leaned more to fiction than science, Pal's film was just the opposite, and even included a Woody Woodpecker cartoon explaining how a rocket works! This landmark production has, no doubt, inspired many future scientists in the years since its original release, and certainly had an impact on the space program that would be launched just a few years later. This beautiful and dramatic poster, with its image of a rocket in flight, is very nearly pristine, with only some pinholes in the field and a little fold wear to keep it from an even higher grade. Professional restoration has rendered these flaws virtually unnoticeable, resulting in a piece with an extreme amount of eye appeal and desirability. Very Fine+ on Linen.
