In this classic and much-emulated work of science fiction, a rescue mission to a distant planet discovers the two survivors of a space ship that crashed 20 years before on the Forbidden Planet.One of the stranded humans has deciphered the secrets of the planet’s long-extinct inhabitants–and the technology that gave them the power to instantly destroy their civilization. Now, he refuses to share his knowledge …and one-by-one the rescuers begin to die.

A dutiful robot named Robby speaks 188 languages. An underground lair provides astonishing evidence of a populace a million years more advanced than Earthlings. There are many wonders on Altair-4, but none is greater or more deadly than the human mind. Forbidden Planet is the granddaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Leslie Nielsen portrays the commander who brings his spacecruiser crew to the green-skied Altair-4 world that’s home to Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his daughter (Anne Francis), the remarkable Robby…and to a mysterious terror. Featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all- electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own.

Based on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”

Notable for first time Robbie the Robot appeared in a film.
