    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    This poster does not exaggerate! It is truly "Amazing" as it depicts the mighty Robby the Robot protecting Anne Francis from the monster from the Id. It was truly a unique monster since it had no form and only materialized through the technology of the Krell. This half sheet has received touchup to slight fold wear and separations, pinholes, a few horizontal creases, as well as minor tears. Also addressed was a thin scratch in the upper right background, bits of surface wear in the borders, and a small chip with a couple of tears in the left border at the horizontal fold. There is a faint unaddressed ink censorship stamp in the background to the upper right of the crossfold. Posters for this title have always been among the most popular of the 1950s sci-fi genre due to its impressive Robot graphics.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.

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