DescriptionThe Man from Planet X (United Artists, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41").
A classic 1950s sci-fi film with an equally classic one sheet that collectors shouldn't miss! Interstellar diplomacy take a serious blow in this atmospheric low-budget thriller from director Edgar G. Ulmer, which features one of the creepier men-from-another-planet in movie history. The mysterious Planet X wanders into our solar system and dispatches an emissary to make contact with the local population. But evil scientist William Schallert wants to exploit the gentle E.T. for his own nefarious purposes. The poster has had professional conservation which has addressed fold wear and misfolds, pinholes in the background, and minor chips in the borders and folds. There was a thin sliver of paper loss along part of the top edge and a bit of chipping in the lower crossfold. The borders have been airbrushed, and the title, title box, and the word "Weirdest" have received some color enhancement. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
