About this item

A classic US One Sheet poster for the 1957 B-movie thriller 'Not Of This Earth,' one of the earliest sci-fi movies made by prolific low-budget producer/director Roger Corman in what has become a seventy year career. In an alien-vampire mashup, the plot saw an extraterrestrial humanoid sent to earth to discover whether human blood can save his dying race. One of a wave of low-budget, exploitative B-movies produced for the burgeoning teen drive-in market, the film was released as the bottom half of a double feature with Corman's 'Attack of the Crab Monsters.' More often than not, the best thing about a B-movie is the poster, and this is no exception. Designed by Albert Kallis, one of the great American movie poster artists, the iconic silent scream immediately captures your attention and certainly did its job drawing in the viewers - the film reportedly made a 400% profit in the first week! Despite its cheap thrills, Time Out reviewed 'Not Of This Earth' as a minor sci-fi gem, and the film has spawned at least two remakes.

Conservation backed on linen. Prior to backing this poster had one vertical and three horizontal machine folds as issued and a few minor nicks and creases to corners and edges. Backing and light colour touching has smoothed and diminished the fold lines ensuring the poster looks fantastic for display. Some overall toning and darkening to edges. Minor printer's ink transfer to left margin and a few grubby marks to lower margin. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
