1951 The Day the Earth Stood Still Half-Sheet Movie Poster

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $4,200

Half-sheet movie poster (14 x 36 inches) issued for the 1951 Twentieth Century-Fox release The Day the Earth Stood Still. This film, directed by Robert Wise, is considered one of the greatest science-fiction features ever produced and the paper issued for the film is equal in status among collectors. The half-sheet is especially desirable because other than the title lobby card, it is the only paper from the film that features both the benevolent alien Klaatu and his colossal robot Gort. The poster displays a five-inch horizontal tear along the left border that has been repaired with tape on the reverse, as well as a few additional minor border tears. Accompanied by a COA from MPgrading, which has graded the poster FINE 7. This is an outstanding example of this classic half-sheet, with all of the minor flaws easily addressed by professional restoration if so desired. SOLD FOR $4,200
