    Description

    E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (Universal, 1982). One Sheet (27" X 41") Advance.
    One of the more scarce posters to obtain from the 1980s is this advance one sheet for the Oscar winning landmark film by Steven Spielberg. It's a deceptively effective rendering of E.T.'s mothership gently floating to earth. Intended not to frighten even the very young, yet still able to convey the idea of an alien craft approaching. Certainly, no modern sci-fi collection is complete without this one! Prior to professional restoration the poster had a tear in the upper border into the artwork as well as crimps within the image. There was a crease in the lower corner into the art and a tear into the mid left area of the artwork. The borders have been airbrushed. The poster was rolled and never folded. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
