    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    One of the biggest names among the sci-fi classics, this Robert Wise picture perfectly encapsulated the growing anxiety of American citizens as the world advanced into the Atomic Age. The themes of peace and destruction balance against one another throughout the film as the alien emissary Klaatu and his towering bodyguard Gort, eventually offering the audience the hope of a better, safer world. This outstanding piece of science fiction cinema made waves through Western culture, earning a special Golden Globe Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "promoting international understanding" and potentially affecting President Ronald Reagan's outlook on global cooperation, particularly with Russia. An icon among sci-fi posters, there has been excellent professional touchup to the folds, pinholes in the borders, a small tear in Gort's shoulder, and chipping and tears in the borders. Fine+ on Linen.
