Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    Heritage is pleased to present the very scarce, complete lobby card set from one of the best sci-fi films of the 1950s, The Day the Earth Stood Still. A spacecraft lands near the White House, carrying a mild-mannered interplanetary traveler named Klaatu. He admonishes Earthlings for their aggressive ways, advising that they live in peace or accept the consequences -- that rulers from other planets will be forced to incinerate Earth. No one believes that Klaatu's intentions are peaceful. When he is assassinated, his gigantic robot bodyguard, Gort, unleashes devastation upon the citizens of Washington D.C. Will Earth be destroyed, or can its people save themselves from total annihilation? This is a rare opportunity to acquire a complete lobby set for the quintessential sci-fi thriller. The title card shows a tear in the bottom border slightly into the 20th Century Fox logo, a dust shadow in the left and top borders, pinholes in the borders, rounded corners, a minute bit of surface paper loss in the bottom border, and a small tear in the left border. All of the scene cards have small corner bends, and the #5, #6, and #7 cards have a pinhole in the background with a scratch. Very Fine-.
