forbidden planet (1956)

considered one of the greatest sci-fi films of the 1950’s, this film was the first of any genre to have an entirely electronic musical score. starring a very young Leslie Nielsen as the ship’s commander and Anne Francis as a mad-scientist’s naive daughter, the movie sets a precedent for what sci-fi eventually becomes in the decades that follow.
