    Description

    The Thing from Another World (RKO, 1951). Fine+. Uncut Pressbook (20 Pages, 12" X 18").
    Post-war America was given spotty information about what "space exploration" truly meant. In 1951 our ideas and images were formed by the new medium of television and the weekly showing of Space Patrol right in our home. Howard Hawks' early contribution to the science fiction genre became one of the 1950s most suspenseful films. Signs of usage includes slight edge and spine wear, spine separations, pinholes, and small tears. There are unobtrusive stains and smudges, and the front and back covers were completely separated. Each of the pages has strips of cellophane tape along the spine and the pressbook has been re-stapled. The pressbook had a soft fold that has been pressed out. Fine+.


    Estimate: $300 - $600.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
