One of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. Holds up very well today even though it was made in 1956. Stars Leslie Nielsen, Walter Pidgeon and Ann Francis. Special effects by folks from Disney Studios. Introduced the amazing "Robby the Robot". Cool electronic music score. Joins "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and "The Thing from Another World" as the most enduring sci-fi movies from the 1950s.
The first time I saw "Forbidden Planet" I was ten years old and couldn't sleep for a week!
