Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen-Backed Very Fine Plus Condition 3-D
Universal Pictures Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster for the Jack Arnold science-fiction film IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE (1953). The film stars Richard Carlson and Barbara Rush. For her performance in the film Barbara Rush won a Golden Globe as "most promising newcomer". The film's cast also includes Charles Drake, Joe Sawyer, Russell Johnson, Kathleen Hughes and Dave Willock. The story revolves around a couple of amateur astronomers who see a mysterious falling object in the night sky. It crashes to Earth and they hurry to see it. They discover a round pod-looking spaceship. By the time they relay this to the authorities, the ship has been covered with rock in a landslide. This disappearance sets the whole paranoid tone for the movie, common in sci-fi films of the period. The film was the first 3D film released by Universal and it premiered in May of 1953. That year saw a rush of 3D films from Hollywood, before trouble with the projection of the movies and the advent of CinemaScope (widescreen) killed interest in stereoscopy, at least for a while. Classic art on this one-sheet by Joe Smith. And we have graded this poster as very fine to very fine plus. The linen-lip around the poster has been trimmed to about 1/4 inch, but this does not impact the poster at all, which is in stellar condition. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic, vintage U.S. one-sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
