    Description

    Destination Moon (Pathé, 1950). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Winner of an Academy Award for Special Effects, this thoughtful sci-fi film centers around scientists John Archer, Warner Anderson, and Tom Powers attempting to pioneer space travel but finds public resistance. The picture is based on noted fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein's story, Rocketship Galileo, which receives an excellent adaptation by George Pal. An unrestored poster with good color and an overall presentable appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as edge and fold wear, pinholes, creases, chips or tears, fold separation, and unobtrusive smudges or stains. There is a faint ink stamp bleed through from the verso within the top border.
