    Description

    World Without End (Allied Artists, 1956). Six Sheet (81" X 81") Style B.
    Alberto Vargas, Esquire and Playboy illustrator, designed the brief outfits worn by the women of the future in this revision of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine. To capitalize on the renown of Vargas, Allied Artists created a special style B six sheet for the advertising campaign which utilized his famous pin-up art (we are also offering the other style (the A) six sheet in this auction). For years, no copies of this B style ever turned up, and many collectors assumed that it had never been produced - even though it had been shown in the original pressbook. Finally, a few years ago, Heritage managed to find two of these rare and beautiful posters and put them up for auction. Now it is once again being offered, and this one is in incredibly nice condition. This is some of the finest work done by Vargas for a movie poster, so don't let this rare opportunity to acquire it pass you by! The poster has been mounted on linen and undergone minimal repair, only to patch slight fold line separation and a couple of crease marks. Very Fine+ on Linen.
