Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). One Sheet (27" 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. 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. Now looking fantastic after restoration, this classic poster has had touchup to the folds, scattered pinholes, and a few minor border tears. There is a minor bit of paper loss in the upper crossfold which has been repaired. There was a very small tear in the central image of the damsel in Robby's arms that has been repaired, and the poster is display ready. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $7,000 - $14,000.
