Description

    Invaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1953). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    In his direction of this landmark sci/fi classic, perhaps the first important one to be shot in full saturated color, William Cameron Menzies, winner of the first Oscar for Art Direction, showed what sheer talent and experience can do when faced with budget constraints. Using deceptively subtle minimalist sets and consistently shooting camera angles from a child's point of view, this film still provides chills for those watching it today. These lobby cards are great examples of all that is right with the picture. From Jimmy Hunt's frightened look staring at the giant green mutant humanoids on the title card, to scene after scene of the taut tension the film delivered, it's just a great set. The title card shows a number "8" written in the top left corner, smudging, a tear in the left border into the woman, and tear in the right border with tape on the verso. All of the cards show pinholes in the corners and top right corner bends, and four cards have pinholes in the image area. Fine/Very Fine.
