The Day the Earth Stood Still, of course, is a science-fiction classic. But my favorite film from the fifties has got to be Forbidden
Planet. It has been often suggested that this film was the inspiration for Gene Roddenberry's TV series, Star Trek. Whether this is true or
not, Forbidden Planet was, what I would call, a great science-fiction film. I especially loved the Disney animation used to depict the
"Creature from the ID" when it would hit the force-field fence. A great scene.
If you younger ATS/BTS members have never seen this film, I heartily recommend it.
