Forbidden Planet

Shakespeare's The Tempest is transformed in this landmark, and now cult, science-fiction film from 1956. Spacemen travel to a planet ruled by Dr Edward Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), who built a kingdom with his daughter (Anne Francis) 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 the secret art of the kiss. Also stars a very young Leslie Nelsen.

Imaginative gadgets galore, plus plenty of suspense and thrills, make the production a top offering in the space travel category. Best of all the gadgets is Robby, the Robot, and he's well-used for some comedy touches.
