    Invasion of the Saucer-Men (American International, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Menacing "cabbage heads" steal the show in this memorable 1950s sci-fi gem, sporting their giant bulging eyes set in massively oversized craniums. Designed by Paul Blaisdell, these terrifying creatures land in the woods and kill an old drunk (a fabulous performance by the great Frank Gorshin), and it's up to a pair of teenagers (Steve Terrell and Gloria Castillo) to try to warn the locals. Of course, no one believes them until it's too late. This perennial favorite one sheet has been restored, with touchup to the folds, the white area/credits has a bit of airbrush work as well as the red boxes above the credits. There were pinholes and two corners with chipping as well as airbrush work around the borders. There was a stain on the verso that bled slightly through on the woman's leg and in the creature on the far right's neck. There were small chips in the crossfolds and some greater touchup to the "n" in "Invasion." Without a doubt, this remains one of the most lurid and fantastic posters of the genre. Fantastic artwork by the great Albert Kallis. Fine on Linen.
