    When Worlds Collide (Paramount, 1951). Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Directed by Rudolph Maté, When Worlds Collide is an exciting science fiction tale featuring a race against time as scientists rush to create arks to save humanity in the face of Earth's imminent destruction. The film stars Richard Derr and Barbara Rush, but this eye-catching poster focuses on the film's excitement over its stars. With its scene of rampant destruction, this one sheet gives a hint of the the film's visuals which were awarded an Honorary Academy Award for Best Special Effects. Backed on linen, the poster displays slight edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, pinholes, minute tears, unobtrusive stains, and faint scuffs and smudges. There is a small amount of touchup in the folds, but the poster displays nicely with no other restoration attempted.

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