The Angry Red Planet Poster

A rare UK Quad poster for "The Angry Red Planet" (1959) aka "Invasion Of Mars".

At a time of Cold War paranoia & rapid technological achievement scifi films such as "The Angry Red Planet" became a staple for many 1950's cinemagoers. The appearance of threatening alien beings resonated with the "reds under the beds" propaganda of the times. This particular film was shot in colour & the Martian planet given an unsettling red hue too. The poster makes the most of the insect like drooling alien creature, the imagery re-adapted from the American poster campaign.

Poster folded with each corner clipped but the slight paper loss effects only the white border. Otherwise minor pin-hole damage to rim. Poster overall in very good condition & could easily be restored if so required. This is a Quad title seldom seen in the market.

NB. A supplementary P&P charge is required for overseas buyers.
