    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
    Unquestionably a favorite among sci-fi collectors, this vibrant half sheet presents the film's famous fan favorite 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 is one of the top science fiction posters for many fans. This example is in very presentable condition, with professional restoration to pinholes in the corners, a small sliver of paper loss in the upper border, and has applied touchup to the folds. There are two vertical creases along either side of the outer image where the poster was once folded back, there is a small area of post-restoration surface paper loss in the lower border, and a crack in the right image that is slightly lifting from the linen. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
