    Description

    The Thing from Another World (RKO, 1951). Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). 1950s sci-fi fans consistently seek out this iconic poster, produced (and some say, largely directed) by the legendary director, Howard Hawks, featuring one of the more distinctive images of the genre. The poster shows some upper vertical fold separation as well as general fold line wear. There was a chip from the upper left border within the border only. After restoration, the poster displays beautifully.
