    Description

    It Came from Outer Space (Universal International, 1953). Autographed Insert (14" X 36") 3-D Style, Joseph Smith Artwork. From the Collection of Frank Buxton, of which the sale's proceeds will benefit The San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
    Universal's entry into the 3D craze of the early 1950s was this science fiction tale of an alien, who crash lands on Earth, and must make repairs on his ship before the people of Earth destroy him. It uses mind control to take over the residents' bodies, and then uses them to perform the required repairs. The film was a first in the genre to feature aliens taking over our bodies; a theme that reflected the subversive fears of communist invaders and takeovers. This insert has been signed by Russell Johnson (better known as the Professor from the TV show Gilligan's Island). Restoration has partially addressed edge wear, creases, small tears, pinholes, and minor chips. There was also a chip in the lower left corner, as well as a tear from the bottom border up to the "C" of "Carlson. Fine+ on Paper.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
