    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Folded, Very Fine+. Three Sheet (41" X 80").
    As the "red scare" swept the nation during the 1950s, feelings of paranoia overwhelmed the populace and it was no surprise that the film industry would respond with pictures such as this one. One of the best of that frightening genre, this was a story about alien pods that came to Earth to create soulless duplicates of people worldwide. The resulting bedlam made for a gripping film. Paper from this popular title has always been avidly sought by collectors, and this classic image of Kevin McCarthy and lovely Dana Wynter running for their lives, variations of which were used on other posters for this release, is widely considered one of the best designs of the era. Showing very little wear this three sheet is in great condition with only soft fold wear and creases, pinpoint crossfold separations, a minute chip at the top right edge, and faint ink stamp bleedthrough. Folded, Very Fine+.
