Movie poster image for FORBIDDEN PLANET


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. Featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all- electronic musical soundscape in film history, this groundbreaking film is in a movie orbit all its own.
