    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Of all the great characters of the 1950s science fiction genre, perhaps the most loved and iconic is Robby the Robot, who makes his first film appearance in this classic. The idea for the character was derived from a short story "Robbie" by Isaac Asimov written in 1940 and reprinted in the 1950 collection "I, Robot." After the huge success of this film, Robby and successive imitators appear in several more films, television episodes, and video games. With Robby holding a beautiful damsel, this is one of the most sought after posters of the genre. Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen, along with the spectacular special effects and thought provoking plot combine to make this a true film classic. This quintessential 1950s poster has some paper loss in the lower horizontal fold where there was wear and slight staining. There were pinholes in the corners and some slight staining in the upper horizontal fold within the green background and also at the far right edge of the artwork near the word "Amazing." There was some touch-up to the folds. The professional restoration was done beautifully, making the defects mentioned almost imperceptible. The is the one of the greatest of the science fiction classic one sheets! Fine- on Linen.
