Description

    Invaders From Mars (20th Century Fox, R-1955). One Sheet (27" X 41"). The science fiction, red-scare boom of the 1950s produced many films about aliens invading earth, and many more involving radioactive mutants. This film is unique in that it is told from the perspective of a twelve-year-old astronomy buff (Jimmy Hunt), who sees a flying saucer land just beyond his backyard. The spacecraft releases evil aliens that start brainwashing the residents of his small town. The artwork on this beautiful one sheet is far superior in design to that of typical science fiction posters of the day. There are minor border nicks and tears, and light fold line wear. The poster has been tri-folded and is in wonderful, unrestored condition. This is the so-called "re-issue" poster from this film though there is no record of the film being re-issued in the USA during this year. Many believe this was a mistrike from a press of which copies were supposedly destroyed, yet copies have survived. There is also a belief that this was a poster intended for overseas distribution. Perhaps the answer will never be known but what is known is that this sheet is far superior in color density to the poster dated 1953 and thus much more attractive. Very Fine/Near Mint.
