    Description

    Flying Disc Man from Mars (Republic, 1950). Very Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 79.5").
    Offered for only the second time at Heritage, this fun three sheet for Flying Disc Man from Mars encapsulates the sci-fi excitement of the Republic serial. One of the more expensive serials produced in 1950, Flying Disc Man from Mars re-used footage from other Republic serials in order to keep costs down. Footage was used form titles including G-Men vs. The Black Dragon, King of the Mounties, and The Purple Monster Strikes, a similarly-themed serial which Flying Disc Man from Mars is sometimes seen as a sequel to. In turn, footage from Flying Disc Man from Mars was used to create a feature film released in 1958 titled Missile Monsters. This colorful poster is backed on linen, with restoration addressing pinholes, edge and fold wear, small tears and chips, and fold separations. A bit of the fold wear is still visible, and are a few faint smudges and tiny nicks, but overall the poster displays very well.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
