    Description

    Them! (Warner Bros., 1954). Folded, Very Fine-. Italian Locandina (13" X 27.75") Luigi Martinati Artwork.
    As originally written, Them! was set in New York City, where giant ants run rampant through the subways. The producers, however, deemed that New York locales were too expensive to film, so they settled on Los Angeles and its extensive network of storm drains. Filmed from September to November 1953, the film was originally to be shot in a 3-D color format. But equipment failures, coupled with studio budget concerns, effectively killed that idea, and the movie reverted to standard black and white. This glorious Italian locandina has artwork by the master, Luigi Martinati. The poster shows fold wear with extra folds, a date stamped tax stamp, a crease, light wrinkling, cellophane tape stains and pinholes at the top border, minor stains on the other borders, strips of paper tape on the verso, and slight edge wear.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
