FORBIDDEN PLANET ART GALLERY (BRUCE COOK)
This painting of Adams and Morbius was done from a 35mm slide I took right off the movie
screen when Forbidden Planet was shown at an "art house" theater in Atlanta. A group of
friends and I took over 300 slides from the movie.
This painting was done from a black & white still from the movie. Robby was shaking hands
with Cookie in the photo, so I had to change his right arm a bit.
Each of these poses of Warren Stevens were also done from slides taken directly from the
The publicity shot I used for the drawing above is so good I think it's just as much a work
of art as my humble drawing. In fact, it took me several attempts to get it right. I kept

Special thanks to Artist, Bruce Cook on these incredible artwork!!
