    Description

    Forbidden Planet (Loews - MGM, 1956). Poster (40" X 60"). Leslie Nielsen, Walter Pidgeon and Anne Francis star in one of the most important sci-fi movies ever made. Posters featuring robots represent the pinnacle of collecting for the 1950s sci-fi genre, and are the most desirable and sought after images in the hobby. This unrestored original poster is silk screened, making it an almost impossible find. There is a two inch tear in the bottom border and pinholes in the corners. Some cracking has occurred from handling and there is a diagonal crease in the image. The wear at the borders and other flaws can be easily repaired with a proper restoration. Once cleaned up and mounted on linen, this poster will display nicely. This is one of the most difficult to find and sought after artifacts from this science fiction masterpiece. Rolled, Fine-.

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