DescriptionInvaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1953). Insert (14" X 36").
Every kid's nightmare comes to vivid life in this classic paranoid sci-fi film from director William Cameron Menzies. Young Jimmy Hunt sees a spaceship land just over the hill beyond his backyard, but no one believes him, and when his father returns from investigating, he seems strangely changed. Highlights of the film include the literal bug-eyed monsters in green velour and the surreal production design (also by Menzies). Professional touchup has been applied to the folds, pinholes in the corners, and small chips in the borders. There was a minor gouge in the background between the monster's arm and Helena Carter's legs, and the borders have been airbrushed. Slight post-restoration wear includes cracks in airbrushing in the upper left corner and some small smudges in the top border. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
