    Day The Earth Stood Still 3-sheet poster. (TCF, 1951) Measures 41 x 79 in. The best representation of the famous "Gort" robot on any U.S. poster, as well as depicting him nearly life-size (the 1-sheet and others show a clunky robot that bears little resemblance to Gort). With significant restoration on an older linen-backing. Some moderate background retouching and a minor dampstain from storage, but overall a remarkably fresh example of an extremely rare poster.
