Day 28 - A great sci-fi B-Movie

Everyone loves Forbidden Planet. The only dispute could be whether it is actually a B-movie or was it something bigger than that? It's another movie which I remember having a considerable effect on me when I watched it on television in the 1970s, largely due the idea of the terrible ID creation that Professor Morbius unleashes. It was only years later that I learnt the whole thing was based on Shakespeare's The Tempest. It's got Leslie Nielsen in his straight acting days, the lovely Anne Francis and it was the first movie to feature Robby the Robot. And just look at the fantastic poster. B-Movie heaven!
