846. Screen-used illuminating Krell Combination Lock from Forbidden Planet. This fantastic piece was used by Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) to gain access to the super advanced Krell alien complex on Altair IV. Standing 41 ½ in. tall (on 3 in. base) x 30 in. wide, this substantial prop is created of wood, with acrylic dished face exhibiting painted Krell symbols, acrylic arrows at 3 and 9 o'clock, respectively, aluminum handle wheel with four illuminating acrylic tips which is able to turn and pivot as seen on screen. Behind the acrylic dish, light emanating from eight 100 watt light bulbs create a "halo" back light effect (powered by a standard 110 volt plug). The lights on the tips of the handle wheel are powered by a 12 volt battery (not included). Only the gray outer cabinet paint resembling Krell metal has been repainted. The texturing is all original as are all the other components of this finely crafted prop. Comes from the collection of noted Forbidden Planetcollector, Bill Malone, and has never before been offered for sale.
