Forbidden Planet

98 minutes 2012

An engaging 1956 science fiction gloss of Shakespeare's Tempest, with a ship full of American astronauts landing on a mysterious planet where Walter Pidgeon and his miniskirted daughter, Anne Francis, guard the remains of a lost civilization. Even as the SF cliches fall fast and heavy, this is great to look at, thanks to the sumptuous MGM sets and the fine animation and matte work by Walt Disney Studios. Fred Wilcox directed.
