    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Folded, Very Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). One of the most beloved sci-fi classics of all time, Forbidden Planet features wonderful performances by Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen. Based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, this 1950s gem is highly regarded for its outstanding special effects, groundbreaking electronic soundtrack, and its first-rate cast and production values. Perhaps most notably, the film introduced cinema enthusiasts to Robby the Robot, arguably the most famous automaton ever to appear on the silver screen. Robby is prominently featured on this very desirable one sheet, which is in exceptional condition. This is perhaps one the cleanest copies of this poster we have ever offered.
