Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
    Robby the Robot, pictured on this eye-catching Style A half sheet, burst onto the 1950s sci-fi scene in Forbidden Planet, a loose adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest. A rescue mission sent to Altair IV, captained by Leslie Nielsen to investigate the disappearance of the spaceship Bellerophon, finds lone survivor Walter Pigeon and his beautiful daughter Altaira (Anne Francis), along with Robby. Unfortunately, they also find a horrific monster, the last remnant of the civilization that used to inhabit the planet, that threatens to destroy them all. In terms of desirability, this is one of the top science fiction posters, and this example is in very presentable condition. Signs of light handling include fold wear, small tears in the bottom and left border with tape on the verso, top edge wear, and a dust shadow in the borders. Folded, Fine+.
