Original Paramount PIctures U.S. Insert Poster (14x36) for the Byron Haskin sci-fi classic, THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953) starring Gene Barry, Ann Robinson, and Les Tremayne. One of the best sci-fi movies of the 1950s, this is the film adaptation of the famous H. G. Wells novel, already revisited by the radio broadcast of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre on Halloween evening, 1938. That program, which began with a series of news bulletins without commercial interruption, caused near panic among listeners who were convinced that an actual Martian invasion was in progress. This popular film version of the story was nominated for three Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Special Effects for the near perfect swan-like flying machines attacking earth. This insert poster is paperbacked. There are signs of some small repairs. Touch up has been applied in some places. The poster presents very nicely, indeed. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. insert poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
