    Description

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Allied Artists, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B. One of the most chilling Cold War-era sci-fi flicks ever produced, this is the story of an extra-terrestrial invasion, accomplished by replacing humans with alien pod people. Playing on America's fears of Communist infiltration, as seen in such classic scare films as Red Nightmare (hosted by Jack Webb), and Invasion USA (not the Chuck Norris version), although this movie is somewhat subtler, and far more artfully produced, than either of the others. Kevin McCarthy stars as Dr. Miles J. Bennell, the only man who seems to realize the full horror of what's going on. This lovely half sheet, the rare and far more desirable "Spotlight Dance" style, shows light fold wear with minor crossfold separation, pinholes in the corners and borders, a tiny chip in the bottom right corner. The poster appears to have been cleaned. If you're looking for the piece on this classic chiller, this is it! This poster was described as being Very Fine when it does have a 4 inch piece out of the top border and a stain which extends into the yellow box which says "Something is happening.." Fine-.
