OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

Forbidden Planet

Must-See Cinema! Better props than the original 'Star Trek' tv show!

Original poster image for Forbidden PlanetClassic 1950s sci-fi, surprisingly, but effectively, based on ‘The Tempest’, with Nielsen’s U.S. spaceship coming across a remote planet, deserted except for Pidgeon’s world-wearied Dr. Morbius (read Prospero), his daughter (Miranda) and their robot Robby (Ariel). Something, it transpires, has destroyed the planet’s other inhabitants, and now, as Bard and Freud merge, a monster mind-thing Caliban begins to pick on the spaceship’s crew. An ingenious script, excellent special effects and photography, and superior acting (with the exception of Francis), make Forbidden Planet an endearing winner.
