Original 1955 METALUNA helmet from the movie "This Island Earth"



Available from Radio Guy.

Here's the seller's description:

USA
1955
This was not a Halloween or child's toy costume. This is an original METALUNA headpiece worn by actors. It was used outside theaters to promote the 1955 classic science fiction movie "This Island Earth". It's made from a early rubber and is very fragile... so almost no original examples still exist. In fact I know of no other mask in existence. There is some edge cracking but the colors are still bright and makes a striking display. You'll never see another. $950.00

These must be rare indeed, and as you say, very fragile. I love this wierd 1950s movie where no one seems to notice that Exeter and the gang are obviously not human, but there you go - 1950s sci-fi I love them all.
