    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Very Fine- on Linen. British Quad (30" X 40").
    Don Siegel's low budget sci-fi masterpiece was based on a novel by Jack Finney and told the story of alien space spores intent upon taking control of the human race, one body at a time, by transforming into exact physical likenesses of their victims and then destroying the bodies. Its original working title was They Came from Another World. A prologue, new ending, and voice-over narration were added shortly after the film's initial release, to help moviegoers keep up with its non-linear plotline. The film is often thought of as a Hollywood metaphor for the McCarthy hysteria that gripped America in the 50s, an unrelenting message that preached the possibility that the enemy is among us. This is only the second time Heritage has offered this scarce quad and that was over 15 years ago. This copy has been professionally conserved with no touch up to small amounts of fold wear, pinholes in the corners and within the image.
