DescriptionThis Island Earth (Universal International, 1956). Fine+ on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 77"). Edmondo De Amicis Artwork.
Heritage is pleased to present this extremely scarce Italian 4-fogli for the first time on the auction floor, boasting the dramatic artwork of Edmondo De Amicis, inspired by one of the most intelligent and elaborate science fiction films of the 1950s. Starring Rex Reason and Faith Domergue and brought to fame with it's mind-blowing special effects, the picture was the first of the genre to be shot in Technicolor, and one of the last three-strip Technicolor movies. Professionally restored, this poster has received corrections to fold wear and separations, slight creases, pinholes, as well as a few tears into the interior and in the background. Also addressed were a couple of slivers of paper loss in the right and upper borders, in addition to chips at the edges and in the folds, including a few in Rex Reason's image.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
