    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Perennially found on everyone's "Best Sci-Fi/Horror Films Ever" lists. The poster for this film remains one of the "Big Three" of science-fiction/horror one sheets of the 1950s. This stunning poster from Robert Wise's intelligent classic is perhaps the most desirable, commanding record prices whenever it appears at auction. This example had minor pinholes, very slight fold separations, and a faint scratch in the robot head. Brilliant color and expertly linen-backed. Very Fine+ on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
