    Forbidden Planet excessively rare silkscreened poster. (MGM, 1956) Vintage original 40 x 60 in. silkscreened poster. Arguably the most iconic Sci-Fi poster of the era, and certainly one of the rarest, with artwork featuring "Robby the Robot" and a scantily clad "Altaira". Paperbacked to address creasing in upper and lower areas with expert restoration to borders, border text, and background. A black light reveals only minimal spot restoration throughout the poster. Very few of these special silkscreened posters survived the theatrical run of the film, and this example is one of only a handful known to exist today. Now presents in vintage very good condition.
