    Description

    This Island Earth (Universal International, 1955). One Sheet (27" X 41").From the Collection of Wade Williams.
    Universal Pictures, the studio that dominated the horror market of the 1930s and 1940s, used this Technicolor, special effect laden film to garner a hold on the science fiction market that was exploding during the 1950s. They had already created a sensation with The Creature From the Black Lagoon and It Came From Outer Space and with this film, proved they were at the top of the genre. The poster for the film is one of the best designs of the era, with art by Reynold Brown and featuring multiple images of the Metaluna Mutant. The poster has had very light airbrushing to the edges of the borders with just a bit more in the white area of the lower credits. There was also a bit of retouch done to a small hole in the image of Earth and to the white field around the "2 1/2 Years in the Making." Overall, the poster has a very clean appearance. From the Collection of Wade Williams. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
