The Day the Earth Stood Still
Original Vintage Sci Fi Horror Movie Poster Window Card (14x22")

 


Introducing the first time in 34 years collecting we have ever acquired this original window card movie poster for, this iconic Sci Fi classic.   The beautiful vintage lobby card has the same amazing artwork as the one sheet which has sold for up to $16,700.   This fantastic Sci Fi Classic Window Card has sold at auction for $1900-2800.  In 2008 it sold for $2400 and it was in LESSER condition than this one we are offering, including folds and creasing.  This one has NOT been folded and NO creases as you see on 90% of vintage Window cards..       * Click enlargeable image above and below for better large view

Very good condition.    Bright beautiful colors with the slightest indication of more than six decades of aging.  A nice sepia tone,  and a couple small chips from the right border and top right corner .  Some minor staining at the top border edge. None of these minor flaws affect the gorgeous artwork.   And, unlike many window cards the top border has NOT been trimmed.

The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951). Window Card (14" X 22").
Although this wasn't the first film to start the sci-fi craze of the 1950s, it was certainly the most important. Director Robert Wise gave the genre some legitimacy when he created the first "serious" science fiction epic that asked pertinent questions about how man would react to learning that we are not alone in our universe. The film also gave rise to the classic robots of the cinema, starting with Gort. The clanky creations that populated the Saturday afternoon serials were distant dinosaurs compared to this menacing robot and "police officer" from another world. We could go on about the film and its impact on the cinema but there are whole books covering that territory. We will add that due to the importance of the film and the graphically superior poster created for it, this one sheet is considered one of the best of the entire era and remains the most sought-after as well. It usually sells for over $10,000 .  And, this beautiful window card has the exact same artwork as the one sheet.   Bright beautiful colors with the slightest indication of more than six decades of aging.  A nice sepia tone,  and a couple small chips from the right border and top right corner .  Some minor staining at the top border edge. None of these minor flaws affect the gorgeous artwork.   And, unlike most window cards this gem has NOT been folded in half and top border has NOT been trimmed.
