    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Robert Wise ushered the science fiction genre into the mainstream cinema with this thoughtful thriller about an alien who visits Earth with a special message for mankind. Although his message was peaceful, this poster would have audiences thinking otherwise. This poster is truly striking and has had only minor work done to the center vertical fold line and to the right side of the "ray" from Gort. The restoration work is first rate and can only be seen upon very close inspection, making this one of the best copies of this iconic poster we have ever seen. There's just something special about a large scale poster with one of the greatest robots ever to appear on screen, making this three sheet a highly sought-after item among sci-fi collectors. Very Fine on Linen.
