“There can be no understanding between the hands and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.”
“Robot Maria” is one the greatest and most iconic of all sci-fi images and beautifully showcased here on this stunning original US one sheet movie poster for the 2010 re-release of Fritz Lang’s hugely influential “Metropolis”. Released as “The Complete Metropolis” due to the addition of 25 minutes of found footage (found in an old Argentinean cinema). This reconstructed and restored sci fi classic is truly deserving the accolade of a cinematic masterpiece. Printed on heavy stock card paper and originally rolled this looks spectacular and displays near flawlessly….Due to a very limited release these examples are extremely scarce and sought after…Investment grade quality…One of cinemas most recognisable and iconic of images irrespective of the genre and a truly fantastic piece of original film movie memorabilia.
Trivia: ‘Maria’ the robot of this film inspired the look for C-3PO in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
