Original 11x14-inch U.S. lobby card was produced to promote the 1957 British sci-fi / horror film, ENEMY FROM SPACE, which starred Brian Donlevy, John Longden, Sid James, Bryan Forbes, William Franklyn, Vera Day, Charles Lloyd Pack, Tom Chatto, John Van Eyssen, Percy Herbert, Michael Ripper, John Rae, Marianne Stone, Ronald Wilson and Jane Aird. The film was directed by Val Guest and written by Nigel Kneale. ENEMY FROM SPACE was released in Endland as, Quatermass 2. It is part two of the classic Quatermass sci-fi film trilogy. This is an original studio-produced movie item -- NOT a copy or reproduction. The card -- #5 of the set -- features a great shot of a badly burned man descending on a metal staircase, after a deadly encounter with the monster. This is a used lobby card that has a number pinholes in the white & yellow border areas, a few border smudges, and a light scratch on the right side of the image. The card has also darkened a bit with age. This is most noticeable because the right border has not darkened, so you can notice the difference from the other borders. However, none of these flaws are too distracting, and otherwise, the card is in solid good+condition. It is pictured below.
