Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Insert (14" X 36").
    "Klaatu barada nikto!" -- This is one of the most memorable of all lines of the science fiction genre. Robert Wise directs this excellent film which is based on the the story "Farewell to the Master" by Harry Bates. Klaatu (Michael Rennie) and his robot Gort arrive on earth with a message of peace, and immediately come into conflict with the more violent humans. There are some people who try to prevent the destruction of the visitors and learn from them, played by Patricia Neal, Sam Jaffe, and the young Billy Gray. This fantastic insert features Gort terrorizing Washington and a frightened Neal, and two other great scenes from this top film. It has been professionally restored to address a tear at the bottom between the two scenes, a chip in the lower left corner, pinholes in the corners of the field and one in the image, and minor creases in the image area. It now displays extremely well, and is a must have for serious sci-fi fans. Fine on Paper.
