    Description

    Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (Columbia, 1956). Three Sheet (41" X 80").
    Suggested by the non-fiction book, Flying Saucers from Outer Space, by retired US Marine Corps Major Donald E. Keyhoe, this is one of the seminal UFO films of the 1950s, lifted from the realm of the merely mundane by the incredible stop-motion special effects work of Ray Harryhausen. The film is unforgettable due to the painstakingly created scenes of flying saucer-caused devastation, including a saucer crashing into Union Station, the destruction of the Capitol building, and the collapse of the Washington Monument. Few films of the period boasted production values as high as this, which explains its long lasting appeal. The poster shows fold wear with separations, creasing, and chipping in the folds. There is some unobtrusive smudging and the poster has pieces of cellophane tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
