    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    A grim departure from the 1950's mutating, multiplying, mauling creature features, Invasion of the Body Snatchers takes a different play off of the rampant paranoia brought on by blacklisting McCarthyism. The unsettling concept that the enemy is very much among us manifests itself in the form of aliens (aka Communists) that arrive and take over human bodies in a small California community. Kevin McCarthy is the town doctor who first realizes the severity of the situation, and Sam Peckinpah (prior to becoming the great director) makes an appearance in a bit part and assisted with the screenplay. This incredibly popular "Spotlight Dance" half sheet had touchup to the folds, light creases, and pinholes in the borders and interior. A few of the pinholes were enlarged, and there is a top left corner bend that is still apparent. The reds in the image, title, and text have received some color enhancement. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
