    Description

    The Thing from Another World (RKO, 1952). Folded, Very Fine-. Japanese STB (20" X 58.5") Miya Artwork.
    This is the first instance Heritage has ever had to offer a Japanese poster from Christian Nyby and Howard Hawks' extremely influential entry into the sci-fi genre. The kanji title on the STB features the same creepy styling of the text found on American posters, unifying the poster design across the two countries. It's also an eye-catching piece for its use of rich color, not to mention its emotive close-up of a screaming Margaret Sheridan created by Japanese illustrator Miya. This all contributes to an excellent display piece, which shows light edge and fold wear, slight creases, and unobtrusive stains. The two panels have been attached with adhesive on the verso, causing some image ghosting in the imprint area. Overall, the image itself is unaffected by most of these issues, making for a great sci-fi acquisition.
