Classic 1950's sci-fi film starring Leslie Neilsen as the commander of a space cruiser that is sent to investigate the disappearence of an entire research team, only to find a man named Morbius, played by Walter Pidgeon and his ultra sexy daughter, Altair played by Anne Francis are the only two left alive on the planet along with a robot named Robby.
The special effects are all top notch and hold up very well today as well as the entire movie.
The crew soon finds themselves fighting an unseen force that tears the men apart and destroys their equipment, but never bothers Morbius or his daughter.
The disc I have is actually a 2 disc set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film in 2006. It comes with lobby card reproductions of the film as well as a bonus film also starring Robby The Robt entitled Invisible Boy. It also had a small replica of Robby The Robot and thes is an instant classic and one not to be missed by fans of the era. One of the extras in a TCM documentary entitled Watch the Skies! 50's sci-fi films and us in which Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and others tell how these films effected them during their formative years.
