    Forbidden Planet hero illuminating laser pistol. (MGM, 1956) The quintessential "ray gun" of the 1950s, this hero laser pistol measures 10.25 x 6 in. with cast resin body and grip, cast aluminum back cap and tiered conical illuminating barrel. With a brass spool around the barrel tip. A button trigger lights the barrel when depressed. Each of the principal crew of the "UPC C-57D" space cruiser carried one of these futuristic weapons. Blaster is original with minor restoration to the bottom of the grip. Rewired with replacement incandescent light bulb for "working" illumination effect. Purchased by the consignor in the 1970 MGM Auction. In vintage fine condition.
