    Description

    War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). (6) Lobby Cards (11" X 14") and (6) Stills (8" X 10"). The option for this film had been on the shelf at Paramount since the silent era, originally purchased for a potential Cecil B. DeMille production. It wasn't until the early 1950s that Paramount decided to dust it off and turn the project over to special-effects wizard George Pal. His Oscar-winning camera trickery is still a wonder to behold, so much so that fifty years' worth of progressively improving special effects have not dimmed its excellence. The lobby card set is in great condition with minor corner bumps and one small tear on the top left border of card number one. Missing from the set is card 2 and 8. The stills are in nice condition. Very Fine.
