    Description

    The War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The Academy Award winning special effects of genius George Pal, the legendary novel by H.G. Wells, and direction by Byron Haskin combine to make this excellent film one of the best of the sci-fi genre. Gene Barry, Ann Robinson, Les Tremayne, and Robert Cornthwaite star as helpless earthlings who flee the invading Martians who seem resistant to every method of attack...except one very small one. This beauty shows only crossfold separations, a small tear at the bottom border, and a light, extra vertical crease. Rarely seen in such remarkable, unrestored condition, this will be the prized piece for any sci-fi collection. Very Fine-.
