Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Insert (14" X 36"). Science Fiction.
    Robert Wise directs this epic and it is the standard to which all other sci-fi films are and will be compared. The Day the Earth Stood Still is considered the forerunner of all the 1950s sci-fi films that followed. Wise's masterpiece deals with man's paranoia and aggression towards things he doesn't understand. This stunning insert features the mighty Gort unleashing his mighty laser-like death ray. The poster was folded and has some restoration work performed within the word "Day" of the title and across the poster horizontal to the word. There was touch-up work to the folds and a slight bit to the border. The colors are bright and the poster displays well. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades; Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine on Linen.
