A dutiful robot named Robby speaks 188 languages. An underground lair offers evidence of an advanced civilization. But among Altair-4's many wonders, 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 plays the commander who brings his spacecruiser crew to the green-skied world that's home to Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his daughter (Anne Francis)...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.Running Time: 98 min.Format: DVD MOVIE
Editor's Note
Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST is transformed in this landmark science-fiction film. Spacemen travel to a planet ruled by Dr. Edward Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), who has built a kingdom with his daughter and obedient robot Robby. The good doctor is plagued by his mad quest for knowledge through his "brain booster" machine, and by Freudian "monsters from the id" as his daughter discovers other men and learns to kiss.

Expert Review Forbidden Planet - 50th Anniversary Edition
By: Rafe Telsch Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/10/2006 12:17 PM
Every classic movie fan has that one movie that they really favor; something from the classic age that will never be recaptured because "they don't make them like that anymore." As a science fiction fan, for me that film is Forbidden Planet, an outer space story of love and adventure loosely based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest. ...read the full review
