Allied Artists Original U.S. Half Sheet Poster (22x28) Rolled Very Fine Condition

Original Allied Artists half-sheet poster (22x28) for Don Siegel's quintessential 1950's sci-fi classic, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1956) starring Kevin McCarthy, Dana Wynter, and King Donovan. This masterful film is the story of a small-town doctor who learns that all the townspeople are slowly being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates. At first, he thinks that there is some kind of "mass hysteria" overtaking his community where friends and loved-ones are described as "not themselves," literally. Indeed, the aliens come to earth in the form of "seed pods" and complete the transformation when the unsuspecting humans fall asleep. This film is one of the American Film Institute's top 10 Science Fiction movies of all time. Director Siegel creates an intense sense of claustrophobia and paranoia, which if further amplified by the excellent musical score by Carmen Dragon. The acting is superb, and the chemistry between Kevin McCarthy and the lovely Dana Wynter seems very real and believable. There are few such subtle and cerebral sci-fi horror films made, and this film is simply one of the very best. This original half-sheet poster is in very fine condition. The poster was probably used in a theater, but it was never folded and has weathered the years quite well. We have graded it in very fine condition. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
