Glendale, CA: Allied Artists, 1954. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1954 film. Based on Paul W. Fairman's 1953 short story "Deadly City."
Nora King (Cathleen Crowley) wakes up after a suicide attempt to find the city of Chicago deserted. As she wanders around, she bumps into three more stragglers and together they learn that the city was evacuated due to a hostile automated alien ostensibly from Venus. The quartet tries to survive as the government attempts to disarm the deadly invader. The film was one of the first to explore the genre of alien invasion, following the notable science fiction classic "War of the Worlds."
Set in Chicago, shot on location in Los Angeles.
8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with a chip and light creasing to the right margin.
