    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Adapted by Edmund H. North from the story "Farewell to the Master" by Harry Bates, this early 1950s sci-fi masterpiece is a thoughtful look at what message aliens would have for us if they arrived on earth. At first misunderstood Klaatu and Gort are attacked by humans, but Patricia Neal, son Billy Gray, and professor Sam Jaffe realize there is more to this visit than it would at first appear. This ever popular poster has been professionally restored to address missing borders, a long tear at the right side, one at the bottom, and crossfold separations. The restoration is expertly done and these issues do not detract from this dramatic and significant piece. From the collection of Wade Williams. Good on Linen.
