    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Standee (32.5" X 59.5").
    Regarded as one of the greatest science fiction films ever made, Robert Wise's classic set the bar for all other entries in the genre. A former editor for Orson Welles, Wise brilliantly instilled within the film a political subtext that reflected the anxieties of post-WWII America. Klaatu (Michael Rennie), a soft-spoken interplanetary traveler, brings forth a message of peace or destruction for Earthlings. The destruction part is personified by his robot bodyguard Gort, who can (and does) emit death rays when threatened. Never offered before by Heritage, this standee bears classic imagery similar to the artwork found on the popular half sheets and title cards. A rare item any sci-fi collector would be proud to own, the standee shows edge and fold wear with some small tears, creasing, cracking, and small paper lifts. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000.
