    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Folded, Fine. Trimmed Window Card (14" X 22"), Belgian (14.5" X 21.5"), & Program (4 Pages, 11" X 17"). As one of the most iconic science fiction films of the 1950s, Forbidden Planet has a devoted following among collectors for its impact on the genre and the posters' monumental space-age imagery. It was MGM's first big-budget sci-fi flick, complete with cutting-edge special effects, the introduction of the beloved Robby the Robot, and a plot inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest. Unrestored items with good color and overall presentable appearances. They may have signs of use, such as edge and fold wear, creases, small tears, and unobtrusive stains or smudges, including tape stains. There are visible ink/tax stamps within the imprint area of the Belgian poster and in the bottom left corner of the image. The window card has been trimmed and includes strips of cellophane tape within the borders.
