DescriptionForbidden 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 notably in The Twilight Zone. The poster now looks fantastic and is in display-ready condition after professional restoration to fold wear, pinholes into the interior, and chips in the borders. The poster has Japanese writing painted on the the verso, but this does not affect the image on the front whatsoever. The poster's linen has been nearly trimmed to the borders. No sci-fi collection could be considered complete without the presence of this fan favorite one sheet. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
