Good Girl Deserves a Good Robot for Herself
Something about a pretty girl in the company of an imposing robot spoke very dearly to the hearts of readers and movie-goers of the Fifties' Space Era. Chrome was at the height of industrial fashion, and the curvy reflective plates of friendly (and not so friendly) robots played well against curvy shapes of the poster girls.
I planned to do this homage to the 50s style for some time, being partly inspired by illustrations from collectible science fiction pulp magazines, and partly by such sites as Fogonazos, or World of Kane with their own collections. So here is the first part of "Futuristic Ladies" post (the next one will feature space girls). Most images are promotional shots for the "Forbidden Planet" movie (1956) with Anne Francis, rare shots from various 60s TV series and, of course, art from vintage SF magazines.
