DescriptionThis Island Earth (Universal International, 1955). Three Sheet (41" X 79") Reynold Brown Artwork.
This film is one of the most intelligent and elaborate science fiction films of the 1950s. Scientists on Earth are enlisted by aliens to help them save their dying planet. When the scientists learn that the Metalunans are actually planning on taking over the Earth, they sabotage their experiments and are taken by flying saucer to Metaluna to be held accountable. Reynold Brown's amazing artistic talents make this one of the most stunning posters of the genre. This poster shows edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, mild creases, pinholes in the borders and interior, and small tears. There are chips in the borders and folds, some unobtrusive stains and smudges, and pieces of cellophane tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
