Universal Pictures Original 40x60 Poster Style Y Very Fine Condition

Universal Pictures Original 40x60 Poster (Style Y) for the Joseph M. Newman science fiction classic THIS ISLAND EARTH (1954), starring Faith Domergue, Jeff Morrow, Rex Reason and Edward Hearn. The one-sheet poster for this film is certainly a good one and very desired by sci-fi collectors, but this 40x60 is simply out-of-sight. No other poster so clearly shows the menacing alien of this classic science fiction movie. THIS ISLAND EARTH is regarded as one of the top 10 sci-fi films of the decade of the 1950s in our opinion. The movie was based on a novel by Raymond F. Jones, which was in turn compiled from three short novels which were published in the magazine "Thrillling Wonder Stories". When the movie was released it received a warm reception from critics and the public alike, a confluence of positive opinion that doesn't always happen with science fiction films. The movie is nicely photographed by Clifford Stine and the music score was at least partially written by Henry Mancini. The film was released on June 1, 1955 in the USA and received a premiere showing in New York on June 10 of that year. The poster is in very fine condition, and we think that this is one of the best science fiction posters of the era. MovieArt Austin guarantees this poster to be the authentic style Y 40x60 for this movie. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
