DescriptionThe Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Very Fine-. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
A classic collectible, this title card is one of the must-have items for any fan of science fiction. Unlike some of the other advertisements made for the film, the title card from The Day the Earth Stood Still features not just the iconic image of a rampaging Gort and the ominous giant hand, but also a shot Michael Rennie as the alien ambassador Klaatu, a feature many other posters for the film lack. The card displays very well, showing only slight edge wear, mild corner creases, pinholes, and a couple of minor tears. There are some faint stains and smudges in the borders, but these do not affect the printing.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
