A rescue mission to a distant planet discovers the two survivors of a spaceship that crashed 20 years before on the Forbidden Planet. One of the stranded humans has deciphered the secrets of the planet's long-extinct inhabitants, and the technology that gave them the power to instantly destroy their civilization. Now, he refuses to share his knowledge, and one-by-one the rescuers begin to die. Loosely based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, FORBIDDEN PLANET gained popularity as a children’s matinee when reissued in the early 70s in a version that cut out all the romance between Leslie Nielsen and Anne Francis. Features the first ever screen appearance of Robbie the Robot!
