    Description

    The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Title Card and Lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14"). One of the most powerful science fiction movies ever made, this film told the compelling story of alien emissary Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who comes to Earth with a dire warning: change your war-like ways or face destruction. As timely today as it was during its initial release, it's not surprising that this film has gained a reputation as one of the top movies in the genre. Consequently, paper from this picture is very highly sought after. Offered here is a beautiful title card and five scene cards with only slight flaws that are virtually undetectable. The title card and five scene cards have been restored to address pinholes in the borders and a tear in the left border. These "out of this world" cards are a must have. Fine/Very Fine. From the Jerry Weist Collection.
