    E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial


    “He is afraid. He is totally alone. He is 3 million light years from home.”

    “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” is the film which Steven Spielberg says epitomises his career. A true classic for all ages. Spielberg chose a regular collaborator in the artist John Alvin to create the marketing poster, and it’s fair to say that he (along with design agency Intralink Film Graphic Design – taking inspiration from Michelangelo’s ‘Creation of Adam’ painting which adorns the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel)  has produced one of the cinema’s classic, timeless posters, that is immediately recognisable as the finger tips of E.T. & Elliott touch to create that spark of friendship. Certainly the best example we have ever offered for sale and very hard to find in this outstanding rolled (as issued) condition and a marvellous item of truly collectable  cinematic movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: Richard Attenborough later said that he felt bad that his own film, Gandhi (1982), beat this film to the Best Picture Academy Award because he considered his friend Steven Spielberg‘s film more deserving of the award and was convinced before the ceremony that it would win. Attenborough described E.T. as “a quite extraordinary piece of cinema”.
