Reviews & Ratings
<p>At once intelligent and campy, Forbidden Planet is an intriguing, sci-fi classic that borrows from Shakespeare’s The Tempest and strongly anticipates Star Trek in its sci-fi milieu. </p>
<p> Set in 2200 AD, a spacecraft from Earth arrives at a distant planet to investigate the status of a missing colonizing party. What Commander John Adams (Leslie Nielsen) and his crew find is a single survivor, the secretive, uncooperative Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) — and his virginal but uninhibited daughter Altaira (Anne Francis), who’s been raised by her father in isolation and has no first-hand knowledge of Earth or men. Robbie, an amazing robot, serves as their butler and protector. </p>
<p>As Adams’ crew prepares to relay their discoveries to Earth and receive further instructions, the deadly force that decimated the first crew reawakens. Key members of Adams’ team are found murdered and Dr. Morbius may not be revealing all he knows... </p>
<p> Forbidden Planet was nominated for an Oscar™ (special effects) and is presented in CinemaScope with Color by DeLuxe.
</p> <p>Also featured: the Porky Pig short Jumpin' Jupiter and a Pathé newsreel. </p>
