    Description

    This Island Earth (Universal International, 1955). Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14").
    Based on the novella of the same name by Raymond F. Jones, this is the story of a group of scientists, including Dr. Cal Meachum (Rex Reason) and Dr. Ruth Adams (Faith Domergue), brought together by an enigmatic figure named Exeter (Jeff Morrow), an emissary from another planet seeking aid against an enemy in an intergalactic war. The film also introduced one of Universal's greatest monsters, the terrifying Metaluna Mutant. Honestly, if you're only going to have three cards from this lobby set in your collection, these are the ones to have! First up is the "Visible Man/Visible Woman" card, that shows some staining in the right border and pinholes in the borders; the spine-tingling "Metaluna Mutant" card, with a tear in the bottom border, pinholes in the borders, and a stain in the top right corner; and the titular "This Island, Earth" card, that has pinholes in the borders, as well as a light stain at the top. Clearly, if iconic science fiction images are your thing, this lot is for you! Fine.
