    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). As the "red scare" swept the nation during the 1950s, feelings of paranoia overwhelmed the populace who feared they would be "taken over" by communists. The film-makers of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" played upon this fear by using space pods as a metaphor for communists. The poster material for the film also plays on these psychological fears by using a "red" background and a huge hand (fivers - a reference to fifth columnists-communist spies) reaching for the fleeing citizens. Other than a couple of trivial border imperfection, this lobby set is in pristine condition. From the Johnny Ramone collection. Near Mint/Mint.
