    Description

    Invaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1955). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Invaders From Mars holds the honor of being one of the first sci-fi scripts written in the 1950s era. While not released until 1953, the revised screenplay was actually finished in September of 1950. The brilliant use of color, creepy music, impressively large set pieces, and imaginative directing by William Cameron Menzies have made this picture a genre classic. Perhaps the movie was ahead of its time, since alien abductions have become such a common theme. This film was not reissued until 1976, but when a second printing was done on the one sheets in 1953, a 1955 copyright date was inadvertently placed on the bottom left side of the poster. This poster is from that second printing. There was some fold wear prior to being linen-backed, but other than that, not much was wrong with this beauty. Very Fine+ on Linen.
