    Description

    The War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). H.G. Wells' Martian invasion tale is one of the most influential works in the history of science fiction. The classic narrative of Earth's battle with beings from Mars has been adapted several times over multiple forms of media, including a television series, a famous radio drama by Orson Welles, comic books, and motion pictures. Of all the film versions, it is director Byron Haskin's take that genuinely stands out. Featuring groundbreaking special effects by George Pal (for which he would earn an Academy Award), along with the acting talents of Gene Barry, Ann Robinson, and Les Tremayne, the film manages to terrify and thrill audiences of all ages even today. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as edge and fold wear, creases, small tears, fold separation, and light toning, and paper tape on the verso.
