    Description

    Things to Come (United Artists, R-1953). Italian 2 - Folio (39" X 55"). Based on H.G. Wells' prognosticative 1933 essay "The Shape of Things to Come" this film spans 94 years, from 1940 through 2036. When it was first released in 1936, the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini reputedly had every print of the film in Italy destroyed due to the extreme similarity between himself and Ralph Richardson's portrayal of "The Boss" of Everytown. "Things to Come" was filmed on an epic scale with eye-popping special effects such as the ones featured on this visually stunning Italian reissue poster. The poster has been linen backed to address pin holes, fold separations and chips in the bottom middle border. Fine on Linen.
