    Description

    The Thing from Another World (RKO, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41.25").
    James Arness plays the title role in this classic science fiction thriller, based on the novella Who Goes There by John W. Campbell Jr. In a remote arctic outpost, a team of American scientists and military men discover a crashed spaceship under the ice and eventually face off against its only survivor: a blood-sucking plant creature from outer space. The film's iconic one sheet is one of the more distinctive science fiction posters ever, a design that eschews more traditional artwork in favor of a bold, alien-esque logo, with stark contrast between the red letters and the green background. Professional touchup has been applied to the folds, small paper loss at the top crossfold, small creases, an extra vertical fold, and pinholes in the corners/background corners. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
