    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1952). Italian 4 - Fogli (54.5" X 74") Giamarra Artwork.
    A giant among classic sci-fi films, paper from this title is highly coveted by collectors the world over. Considered to be among the top pictures released in 1951, Robert Wise's story wrapped the day's fears of atomic annihilation within an extraterrestrial tale, simultaneously giving a warning to the destructive nature of international hostilities while asserting that there is hope for a peaceful future. A wonderful adaptation of Harry Bates' poignant short story Farewell to the Master, this American classic was not only a thrilling film, but also thought provoking experience for the anxious post-WWII audiences. A great poster featuring Giamarra artwork, touchup has been applied to the folds with small chips, pinholes in the borders and interior, small tears in the border, and a chip in the upper left corner. Very Fine- on Linen.
