Miniature special effects skyscraper from Kurt Russell “Snake Plissken’s” memorable fly-in sequence above the streets of New York City. Snake pilots his glider between the city’s buildings that are rendered in miniature. In 1997, a major war between the United States and the Soviet Union is concluding, and the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a giant maximum security prison. When Air Force One is hijacked and crashes into the island, the president (Donald Pleasence) is taken hostage by a group of inmates. Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), a former Special Forces soldier turned criminal, is recruited to retrieve the president in exchange for his own freedom.
This building is constructed of wood covered in matte black paper with white grid lines for the visual effects sequence displayed on Plissken’s glider monitors, some with production notations handwritten on the bases. This item shows sign of wear from use in the film but remains in good production used condition and measuring approximately 7.5″ x 5.5″ x 5″.
