FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, 1964. Original H.G. Wells 1 sheet (27 x 41” / 68 x 104 cm) movie cinema poster for sale starring; Edward Judd, Martha Hyer, Lionel Jeffries, director Nathan Juran and writers Nigel Kneale (screenplay) and H.G. Wells (author of the 1901 Novel). HG Wells was not the first to be almost precognitive in inventions that would come, he along side with Jules Verne had eerie knacks of imagining inventions that were decades or over a hundred years off from coming to pass; (submarines, landing on the moon, Television news casts, lunar modules, tazers, automatic doors, gene engineering and lazers). Perhaps they were just good at seeing how human invention would eventually evolve based on physical limitations of reality, or maybe they were just fanciful dreamers; either way, their fame is not trivial and it can be seen in the value of some their posters selling at famous auction houses over the years.
This particular H.G. Wells movie poster featured in cinema’s in the 60s’ is in very fine to near mint condition and only has a few minor imperfections to note; very light fold line wear and wear along the bottom margin and a single tear (<0.5 inches) at the top right of the poster (no missing paper).
