Outline: This 1956 pop adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest is one of the best, most
influential science fiction movies ever made. The first Sci-Fi movie in Hollywood with a budget
of over $1m - in 1956... Its space explorers are the models for the crew of Star Trek's
Enterprise, and the film's robot is clearly the prototype for Robby in Lost in Space.
Walter Pidgeon is the Prospero figure, presiding over a paradisiacal world with his
lovely young daughter and their servile droid.
When the crew of a spaceship lands on the planet, they become aware of a sinister invisible
force that threatens to destroy them. Great special effects and a fabulous and bizarre electronic
score help make this movie a cult classic.
