Forbidden Planet, the classic 1956 Fred M. Wilcox futuristic science fiction space monster thriller (based on the story by Irving Block & Allen Adler) starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, Leslie Nielsen, Warren Stevens, Jack Kelly, Richard Anderson, and Robby the Robot
This film was MGM's first big-budget science fiction production, and featured state-of-the-art special effects, along with a strong script that was based on Shakespeare's play, "The Tempest." The huge success of the film was due mostly to its mechanized performer, Robby the Robot, who became so popular with audiences that he went on to star in two more feature films.
