    Description

    The War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A. "No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own..." So begins Herbert George Wells' classic novel of alien invasion, "The War of the Worlds." Paramount had wanted to film the famous sci-fi novel as far back as the silent days, but it took until the sci-fi craze of the 1950s for the production to come to fruition. With genius George Pal as producer, the film was an epic tour de force that displays some of the finest special effects of the era. This evocative Style A half sheet shows fold wear and pinholes in the corners, as well as a fair amount of surface dirt. Still, this is an attractive half sheet for one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever filmed. Fine+ on Linen.
