    Mentor Huebner original concept art for Forbidden Planet. Mentor Huebner original concept art for Forbidden Planet. (MGM, 1956) Forbidden Planet is one of the most influential early sci-fi movies produced by Hollywood, even sited by Gene Roddenberry as an inspiration in his creation of Star Trek. One of the most striking elements of this iconic production was the fantastic design. Here is an original concept painting by legendary production design artist Mentor Huebner. Accomplished in acrylic paint on 8 x 20 in. (visible through mat) artist board. The painting depicts a large silver flying saucer parked on an exotic alien planet, set against a background of green skies, amidst purple crystal formations. The painting is set in an 15 x 26 in. black mat and signed on the lower left border of the art, "Huebner P851". In fine condition.
