    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Very Fine- on Linen. Australian Daybill (13" X 30").
    Michael Rennie and Patricia O'Neal forge an alliance between different worlds in what many consider to be the very finest of the sci-fi genre. The graphics on this Australian piece, though based on the original American release material, is a beautiful stone litho rendering. The colors and artwork make this one of the strongest visual posters from the film. This is an original release Australian daybill printed in Sydney by W.E. Smith and is very rare. A similar poster was reprinted in the 1960s when the film was reissued by a different printer with a different censor code. Prior to restoration, the poster had fold wear with small chips at the borders. It now displays beautifully.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
