    Description

    Invaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1953). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    As unsettling as any science fiction film can be, this tale is told through the eyes of young David MacLean (Jimmy Hunt) as he watches his parents and all the grownups in town fall under the control of invading space aliens. A perfect paranoia-inducing vehicle, the picture skillfully leveraged the Cold War atmosphere of the day, providing a metaphor for the fear of Communist infiltration into the United States. Although filmed on a tight budget, director William Cameron Menzies expertly crafted an exceptionally memorable film. This colorful half sheet has general wear at the folds, pinholes in the corners, and staple holes in the lower border and upper background. The borders have small tears, minor chips, and slight creases. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
