DescriptionInvasion of the Saucer-Men (American International, 1957). Very Fine+ on Linen. Three Sheet (41" x 78.75). Albert Kallis Artwork.
If campy and fun is your style of film, this 1950s drive-in sci-fi flick is definitely for you! Small, green, bug-eyed aliens, designed by Paul Blaisdell, are out to seek revenge for the accidental death of one of their own. A pre-Riddler Frank Gorshin, Steven Terrell, and Gloria Castillo are the hapless humans who eventually figure out how to use their car headlights to defeat the invaders. AIP's graphic artist, Albert Kallis, created the poster designs for the film, and the wonderful, cabbage-headed Martians have become very much the favorite among collectors. The three sheet format is quite scarce, and this excellent example has had light professional corrections to the folds, a few light creases, and some writing bleedthrough in the lower right corner. Very Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
