FORBIDDEN PLANET
1956, Warner Bros., 98 min, Dir: Fred Wilcox

The film that launched a thousand (space) ships, this big-budget science fiction blockbuster is a space opera with its roots in Freud, Jung and Shakespeare. Starring Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen (as the prototype for Captain Kirk) and the beautiful, future Miss Honey West (Anne Francis) as the mini-skirt-wearing, skinny-dipping object of all the men's affection.
