This early classic Sci-Fi film helped make the genre respectable instead of the stuff of B movies. There are elements of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden in this tale of starship travel to discover why a planet of scientists has fallen silent. All but two are dead, but why isn’t survivor Dr Edward Morbius pleased to see his rescuers?
Starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and a young Leslie Nielsen.
