  1. The 50s sci-fi movies, for the most part, were produced during the 50s revolution and before the 60s revolution, and you see the influence and prefluence of both great cultural shifts. It’s those two eras that we most identify with when we refer to entertainment nostalgia. And now we are seeing science fiction becoming science fact. That is why 50s sci-fi is still a big deal.

    “Anne Francis stars in (ooh ooh ooh) Forbidden Planet” Nice lead-in to next week! 😉

  2. Tony will be delighted to hear that there is another version of this story – called Return to the Forbidden Planet – which uses Shakespeare’s dialogue and is also a musical! It employs rock’n’roll tunes from the 50s or 60s to advance the plot and generally break up the Bard.

    He’ll be even more delighted to learn it’s a stage production and there’s probably no way we can make him watch it.
