    Close Encounters of the Third Kind production-made "Devil's Tower" mountain miniature. (Columbia, 1977) In Steven Spielberg's innovative Sci-Fi blockbuster Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the iconic Devil's Tower, a real-life monolithic mountain in Wyoming serves as a beacon for selected earthlings to congregate for a historic meeting with aliens. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) memorably recreates the landmark obsessively in many mediums, including mashed potatoes! This is a production made Devil's Tower miniature consisting of 36 x 22 x 13 in. cast resin shell with 2 in. thick polyfoam lining on the interior. Possibly used as a reference model, the prop was expertly painted in post-production by artist Greg Jein in browns and grays to appear as actual stone. In production-used, vintage very good to fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
