Forbidden Planet

Fred Wilcox / US, 1956 / 98 min.

The year 2200 CE was still far away in the 1950s – far enough to indulge in futuristic fantasies about space travel, human-friendly robots and extremely human-unfriendly monsters. Forbidden Planet ranks as a gem in the SF genre because of its careful attention to sets, costumes and props as well as the presence of Robby the Robot, the faithful assistant to the great space scientist Dr. Morbius.
