    I Aim at the Stars, The Wernher von Braun Story, 1960 One Sheet Movie Poster with Two 1962 "4¢ Mercury Stamp" Decals. This 1960 film starring Curt Jergens, Victoria Shaw, Gia Scala, Herbert Lom, and James Daly, was directed by J. Lee Thompson and tells "The most incredible story of the space age! Wernher von Braun is the man who made it come true." Note that this was released the year before any manned space travel. Rough at folds, worn, about very good. Also included are two 6.5" x 6.25" decals (on one sheet) with a large graphic of a rough design for the stamp (without the denomination) and the text "4¢ Mercury Stamp issued by USA February 20th 1962" above, with "Freedom 7 Carries first astronaut in space" below. The names of each astronaut are listed around. Some staining, very good overall.
