    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14").
    A veritable boon for dedicated collectors of 1950s sci-fi, this lot boasts the highly prized title card and three scene cards from one of the most powerful movies of the genre. The Day the Earth Stood Still tells the compelling story of alien emissary Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who comes to Earth with a dire warning: change your warlike ways or face destruction. As timely today as it was during its initial release, it's not surprising that this film has gained the reputation as one of the top sci-fi films of the 50s. Consequently, paper from this picture is highly sought after. The title card displays pinholes in the corners, edge wear, and a gouge in the left border. The #3 card has rounded corners, surface paper loss in the top corners and a nick in the top border. The #4 card has stains in the bottom border, pinholes in the corners, an ink mark and pinhole in the background. The #8 card has stains in the bottom and right border, a gouge in the background, and a bottom left corner bend. None of these imperfections detract from the high appeal of these lobbies. Fine/Very Fine.
