    Invaders from Mars (20th Century Fox, 1955). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The Red Scare-fueled 1950s spawned a score of sci-fi thrillers rampant with aliens invading earth or marauding radioactive mutants. Invaders from Mars is an unusual addition to the genre, as it is told from the perspective of a twelve year old astronomy buff (Jimmy Hunt), who witnesses a flying saucer land near his home. The spacecraft releases evil aliens that start brainwashing the residents of his small town including his parents. The artwork on this one sheet is far superior in design to that of typical science-fiction posters of the day, and the poster has the rare copyright error (listing the film as 1955 rather than 1953). We believe that this is actually a second printing of the one sheet which has this error in date. The film, from all records, does not show to have been reissued domestically in 1955. Minor signs of handling include pinholes in the corners, right edge wear, a tear in the vertical fold at the edge and left border, fold wear, cross fold separation, and extra vertical creases. Fine+.
