    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B. The National Film Preservation Board entered this film into the National Film Registry back in 1994. When they get around to entering film posters into their own registry, this one will be one of the first. It's the legendary "Spot Light Dance" rare Style B half sheet, the source of endless searching for many dedicated science fiction collectors. Most consider it to be the best image from the film, and who are we to argue? Don Siegel's low-budget sci-fi masterpiece was based on a story by Jack Finney about alien space spores intent on taking control of the human race, one body at a time, by replacing them with replicas and then destroying the original! There are mild narrow surface scuffs in the right center field, minor corner bumps in two corners, minimal fold wear, and a small punch in the left middle field between 'invisibles.' There is minor edge wear with very tiny stains in the lower right border. It has been brought to our attention that there is a slight registration problem with this image. Please be advised as this is a standard printing issue and is not terribly unusual but can effect value. Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
