    Description

    Things to Come (United Artists, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This 1936 science fiction film was produced by Alexander Korda and directed by William Cameron Menzies, with the screenplay written by H.G. Wells as a loose adaptation of his own 1933 novel, "The Shape of Things to Come," and his 1931 non-fiction work, "The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind." Predictions of the world's future, from the prescient visions of World War II to the wildly imaginative ideas of life in 2035, fill this great and epic British production. Raymond Massey, Ralph Richardson and Cedric Hardwicke star in this look one hundred years ahead, with events ranging from global war to devastating plague to ultra-modern reconstruction. The posters for this very early science fiction epic have always been very scarce, and this beautiful, unrestored copy is magnificent. The 1930s deco-designed vision of the future this glorious poster offers makes it a must for the most advanced science fiction collector. The poster has pinholes in the corners, with an additional soft vertical fold which is present on either side of the center vertical fold. There are additional pinholes around the border and a small amount of fold wear with a bit more at each crossfold. Colors on this poster are as brilliant as the day it was printed. Very Fine.
