Description

    Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (Columbia, 1956). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Every serious 1950s sci-fi film buff should own this sensational poster, inspired by one of the most unforgettable of the alien invasion films of that decade. Much credit for its huge appeal must be given to the marvelous special effects work of stop-motion genius Ray Harryhausen. While similar in plot points and themes to both The War of the Worlds and The Day the Earth Stood Still (even going so far as to use stock footage from this film) the thrills are heightened by painstakingly created scenes of flying saucer-caused devastation, including a saucer crashing into Union Station, the destruction of the Capitol building, and the collapse of the Washington Monument. Ominous and foreboding, the imagery on this one sheet continues to be a fan favorite nearly six decades after it first appeared in theater windows across the U.S.! There is wrinkling and creasing near the top, a small tear in the right border, a light stain in the tagline box, and a fold separation in the lower vertical fold. Folded, Fine+.
