War of the Worlds R1965
The War of the Worlds (Paramount, R-1965)Linen Backed One Sheet (27" X 41")Ultra Rare RereleaseThis is a guaranteed original movie poster. This is not a REPRINT or a REPRODUCTION.This reissue poster for one of the most important science fiction films of the 1950s is especially desirable among collectors as it features the Martian war machines, unlike the original 1953 one sheet. Much of the credit for the success of this adaptation by George Pal of the H. G. Wells classic should go to art director Albert Nozaki who provided concept drawings, key storyboards, and perhaps the most important element, the design of the Martians and their weapons.This science fiction collector's essential has been professionally linen backed and is ready for framing. It has had some professional restoration to fold lines, edge wear, handling, etc. and is now in C9 Near Mint condition.This is an incredibly rare poster and does not come up for sale very often.
