    Description

    It Came from Outer Space (Universal International, 1953). Poster (40" X 60").
    One of the very best of the 50's sci-fi offerings with a great cast, above average plot and story (Ray Bradbury), and a whole bunch of film firsts. Thanks to Mr. Bradbury, it was the first sci-fi movie to portray aliens as anything but psychopathic killers. It was Universal's first 3-D film. It was the first of the "desert" sci-fi's. It was certainly one of the first to use the theremin for the sci-fi electronic sound we all know and associate with the 50's genre. It was the first time the monster's perspective was used, letting us view through the cyclops eye. This is a format we seldom see. These oversize 40" X 60"s were usually ordered by larger theatres and had much lower print runs than the other seven commonly used sizes. This art was used only in this format and features great shots of the cast reacting in fear to the eye. It carries the all important "3-Dimension" banner at the top. There has been some restoration touch up for pinholes, small chips in the "3-D", and edge wear with small chips and tears. There are minor creases throughout. From the collection of Wade Williams. Rolled, Very Fine-.
