    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Very Fine+ on Linen. Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41").
    As one of the most iconic science fiction films of the 1950's, Forbidden Planet has a devoted following among collectors for its impact on the genre and the poster's monumental space age imagery. It was MGM's first big budget sci-fi flick, complete with cutting-edge special effects, the introduction of the beloved Robby the Robot, and a plot inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest. Backed on linen, this one sheet features the signatures of Warren Stevens, Jack Kelly, Anne Francis, and Earl Holliman in the credits area, a rarity that could be the cornerstone for any sci-fi collector! The poster has touchup to the folds, and very light airbrushing to the borders to address minute tears. There is faint ink bleedthrough in the top left of the image.

    Estimate: $7,000 - $14,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
