DescriptionTobor the Great (Republic, 1954). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Designed to pilot a rocketship into deep space, Tobor - a robot that is controlled telepathically - is kidnapped by Communist agents and forced to serve their evil purposes. It's up to Tobor's creator, Dr. Harrison (Charles Drake), and his grandson Brian (Billy Chapin) to save the day. This highly desirable piece - one of the best of the "Robot" posters of the 1950s - shows some slight fold separations, pinholes, and a few small tears in the borders. There is a chip in the upper left corner and two very minor paint drips in the woman's legs. Folded, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
