Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). One Sheet (26.75" X 41").
    A gem among the 1950s' camp-filled science fiction pictures, this off world adventure fused together high production values, a futuristic setting, and a touch a Shakespeare's The Tempest to create a sci-fi classic. Perhaps most importantly, it created one of the most beloved characters the genre has ever produced, Robby the Robot. Audiences instantly adored the film's automaton, who would go on to star in The Invisible Boy and make several appearances in a number of other films and TV shows, most notable The Twilight Zone. Always in high demand, this one sheet has had touchup applied to the folds, scattered pinholes, and to the borders and interior. The linen has been trimmed to the border, extending slightly into the right border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
