(MGM, 1956) An extremely rare original release 3-Sheet poster for the iconic Freudian techno-horror masterpiece, "Forbidden Planet." Featuring bold artwork of Robby the Robot carrying the beautiful Altaira, against a backdrop of Mod-futurist architecture and cosmic iconography, the poster epitomizes all the greatest elements of the era's pulp sci-fi aesthetic, while simply enticing audiences with the tantalizing promise "Amazing!" Forbidden Planet transformed American science fiction as the first cinematic depiction of humans travelling the stars in a faster-than-light ship of their own creation, set entirely away from Earth. With a sophisticated script inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, and the instantly loveable Robby the Robot, the movie became a hit at the time of its release and remains as arguably the most enduring sci-fi film of the era.

This gorgeous large-format poster is one of the scarcest styles not just for this film, but for any genre classic of the period. The piece measures 42"x79" and has been professionally restored, and linen backed, displaying in fine condition. As with the discovery of a hyper-advanced alien civilization, opportunities to own one of the most sought-after sci-fi posters in the galaxy rarely happen more than once a millennium.
