Original Embassy Pictures One Sheet Poster (27x41). Folded. Very Fine Condition.
Original Embassy Pictures One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the hilarious science fiction Christmas fantasy, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964) directed by Nicholas Webster and starring John Call, Leonard Hicks, and Vincent Beck. This amateurish, low-budget kids movie is generally considered to be one of the worst films ever made. Santa is kidnapped by distraught Martians with bad green makeup, dishwasher parts glued to their heads, and cheesy capes. The Martians are attempting to rescue their depressive and antisocial children by giving them toys. While the Martians were utterly ridiculous to adults, they unintentionally frightened many of the children in the audience. The film ends with pseudo-rousing "Hooray for Santa Claus" complete with subtitles that encourage the audience to sing along. Not many did. This original one sheet poster is folded and in very fine condition with only tiny distresses at the fold intersections but with no separations at the fold lines. Truly a nice unbacked example of the poster.
