    Description

    Invaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1953). Poster (40" X 60").
    The "red scare" of the 1950s inspired a "green scare" rash of science fiction movies about bug-eyed aliens from outer space coming to get us. Perhaps the finest of these is William Cameron Menzies's surreal Invaders from Mars, a purposely garish and wonky thriller that all turns out to be a young boy's fever-dream. With arch, unrealistic sets and outrageous monsters (including 7-foot aliens in green velour with the buggiest of bug-eyes), this is an unforgettable film experience. Offered here is the rarely-seen 40" X 60" (the first opportunity we've had to offer it) with artwork seen on no other paper for this title. Condition issues were minor, and included a tear in the bottom border, small edge tears, and overall surface creasing, all of which has been smoothed over with professional restoration. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
