    Description

    Things to Come (United Artists, 1936). Insert (14" X 36").
    Based on the landmark novel by H. G. Wells, this story is about the devastating effects of a World War, and the way in which it transforms society in the years, decades, and centuries that follow. After war ravages the planet, and plague decimates most of the remaining population, a group of forward thinking scientists, Wings Over the World, step in to rebuild, eventually placing mankind on a path that will lead to the very stars themselves. With a screenplay written by Wells himself, and starring such outstanding actors as Sir Cedric Hardwicke, Raymond Massey, and Ralph Richardson, the movie is a triumph on virtually every level. Paper from this exceptional production is quite scarce and highly desirable - a one sheet sold in the 2007 Heritage auction for $32,862 - appealing to true science fiction fans worldwide. With artwork similar to the Australian daybill sold in 2008 for $8,365, this striking insert is sure to please collectors. The borders have been airbrushed, there is a small rectangular splice in the bottom section, and touchup has been applied to pinholes in the background, two tears in the right border slightly into the image, three small tears in the left border, and one tear in the bottom border into the credits. Small stains are noted in the rocket. The piece displays exceedingly well after the expert restoration. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
