Wells; about a meek English shop assistant who is chosen by three gods who are arguing to be given unlimited power to see what he will do with it; he surprises them by trying to make the world perfect, but everything he wishes for works out wrong and in frustration, he wishes for the Earth to stop moving, which starts hurling everything off of the Earth's surface, but he has just enough time to wish for everything to be undone) starring Roland Young, Joan Gardner, Ralph Richardson, Edward Chapman, Ernest Thesiger, Sophie Stewart, and George Sanders (in one of his very earliest minor roles, as one of the three gods!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has never been machine folded! Most half-sheet posters were folded once horizontally and once vertically right off of the printing press. It is very difficult to find an unfolded example of most half-sheets, especially from before 1970!

Condition: good. There is a 6" tear in the middle of the top edge as well as some tattering and small paper loss around the edges of the poster (repaired with tape from the back).
