    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Forbidden Planet was MGM's first big-budget sci-fi flick, complete with cutting edge special effects and a plot based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, but set in the 23rd century. Leslie Nielsen commands a cruiser ship on a rescue mission to a remote planet where Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) has been stranded for the last few decades. The good doctor has made the best of his accidental exile, building something of a utopia for he and his daughter (Anne Francis). Robby the Robot, a far superior technological creation than anything on Earth, vigilantly protects the paradise. It's no surprise this film had a big impact on future outer-space tales, including Star Trek. The one sheet from the movie has a dedicated following amongst poster collectors, and is much admired for its Space Age imagery in bright, interplanetary hues of green, purple, and red. Besides its wonderful colors and design, the poster only shows minor wear -- pinholes with very tiny chips in the corners and a stain in the bottom right corner. An excellent opportunity for serious poster collectors! Folded, Very Fine-.
