    Description

    King of the Rocket Men (Republic, 1949). Folded, Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Inspired by early science fiction pulps and the comic strips of Buck Rogers, this excellent serial from Republic Pictures thrilled audiences across America. The plot was sensational as well. Jeff King, a scientist at Science Associates, has to use an experimental jet pack to find and destroy Dr. Vulcan - an evil scientist who employs a device known as the Decimator to kill rivals and take over their inventions. The poster shows fold wear with small tears and light smudging.
