Description

    The War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    The obliteration of humanity is near in this classic Martian invasion tale, based on the novel by H. G. Wells, and adapted from Orson Welles' terrifying 1938 radio play. The rights to Well's novel were first obtained by Cecil B. DeMille in the mid-1920s, who wanted Alfred Hitchcock to direct at one point. When plans fell through for DeMille, George Pal was given control of the picture. He would go on to produce the film now recognized the world over, which showcases terrific acting and mind-blowing special effects. Paper on this science fiction classic is always in high demand. The set shows some corner bumps, and three cards have paper tape on the verso along some borders. Card #6 has a minor dust shadow along the right edge. Very Fine.
