DescriptionForbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
Unquestionably a favorite among sci-fi collectors, this vibrant half sheet presents the film's famous robot, Robbie, front and center with an excellent eye-popping design. An intentionally misleading portrayal of the character, most advertisements introduced the beloved cyber servant as the plot's presumed villain, saving the true monster as a surprise for theatre audiences. This space-based version of Shakespeare's The Tempest has endured for decades as an icon of its genre, making this one of the top science fiction posters for many fans. It has mild edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, light creases, and a couple of dust shadows. There is some smudging in the borders and a tear extending from the bottom edge into the lower background braced with pieces of cellophane tape on the verso. Likewise, the poster has a couple of minor chips in the right border that have been reattached with archival and cellophane tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
