    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1952). Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
    Based on Harry Bates' short story Farewell to the Master (in which Gort was the controlling force), this science fiction allegory attracted A-list director Robert Wise because of its anti-military stance. For the kids, however, it was all about Gort, laser beams, flying saucers, and "Klaatu barada nikto." Of course, Gort himself is one of the coolest robots in the history of the genre, and this sublime Italian two-folio has the mighty automaton front and center, as it should be. This is our very first opportunity to offer this great-looking Italian poster, with bold graphics and great color. The poster had pinholes in the border with a few in the artwork, fold wear, and tears in the top corners, all of which has been smoothed over with professional restoration. Fine+ on Linen.
