DescriptionThem! (Warner Bros., 1954). Very Fine- on Linen. Six Sheet (80" X 79").
This is certainly one of the seminal films of the fifties science fiction genre and this poster has everything a great representation of that genre should have. The story of atomic mutated ants terrorizing a Southwestern population was the chiller television highlight of every child that grew up in the late fifties and sixties. James Whitmore and James Arness investigate mysterious deaths in the California desert, which leads them to a pack of Big Bugs which converge upon Los Angeles in the action-packed finale. There has been partial restoration to edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and minor tears and chips. Also present are a few faint stains and a small paper lift. Some of these issues have been addressed, and the poster is beginning to lift from the masa paper in a couple of places. The title and parts of the borders are airbrushed, and the lower edge of the linen has been trimmed near the bottom border.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
