This poster advertises a sci-fi/apocalypse movie starring the popular Calypso singer Harry Belafonte. It was directed by Ranald MacDougall and released in 1959 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM).
Good+ condition. Several closed tears and crinkles along the edges; one tear is held together on the reverse side with masking tape. Faint owner's stamp on the back. Otherwise, the colors are vivid and there are no apparent stains on the front. Measures approx. 28" wide x 22" tall. Serial no. B 59/166 in lower right corner. Item #169166
A nice example of the aesthetic so identifiable with vintage science fiction. This is a less common half-sheet design for THE WORLD, THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL; the best-known poster for this movie is a full-sheet design.
