A 4D Man burned building facade
Universal Pictures, 1959. Miniature facade of a red brick building which has endured a fire, with 24 window openings with windows in various stages of destruction (some complete and some missing altogether), with charred areas that were actually burned while filming the scene, encased in a wooden shadow box with handles on each side and a plexiglass cover. When scientist Tony Nelson, played by James Congdon, attempts to pass a pencil through a piece of steel and enter the 4th dimension using his self-made amplifier, he accidentally starts a fire which burns down the science center laboratory at which he works. This amazing miniature set was acquired directly from Valley Forge Film Studios in Pennsylvania, the studio of director Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr. The burning facade realistically presented as a full-scale burning building without the use of computer graphics. Accompanied by an 8 x 10 in. vintage photo of the facade being filmed for the burning building scene and a color snapshot.
49.25 x 105.25 x 10.5 in.
