    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Insert (14" X 36").
    Robby the Robot made his debut in this classic science fiction film, a loose adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest. A rescue mission sent to Altair IV, captained by Commander J. J. Adams (Leslie Nielsen) to investigate the disappearance of the Bellerophon, finds lone survivor Dr. Edward Morbius (Walter Pigeon) and his beautiful daughter Altaira (Anne Francis), along with Robby, Dr. Morbius's creation. Unfortunately, they also find a horrific monster, the last remnant of the civilization that used to inhabit Altair IV, that threatens to destroy them. In terms of desirability, this is one of the top science fiction posters of the 1950s, due to its terrific, eye-catching graphics. This gorgeous insert, with its incredible image of Robby, shows clear tape in the top and bottom borders, as well as edge wear with some small tears, but is, overall, in exceptional condition. Rolled, Fine+.
