The Day the Earth Stood Still

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1951. Vintage US illustrated two-color silkscreen banner poster from the 1951 film. A striking graphic, printed in two tones of blue, befitting the classic science fiction film. Stamped in allotted space on lower right with Sign and Pictorial Local Union 230 stamp, with National Screen Service and Twentieth Century-Fox 1951 copyright stamps below.

Widely considered one of the best and most intelligent science fiction films ever made, beautifully balancing elements of suspense and dramatic depth. Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke ranks it seventh in his list of the best science fiction films of all time, just above "2001: A Space Odyssey."

Selected for the National Film Registry in 1995.

Shot on location in Washington, DC.

82 x 24 inches. Rolled. Very Good plus overall with no restoration. Some light creasing throughout with several short closed tears and a few pinholes to extremities, bright and unfaded.
