Outstanding 50s SF, based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, fine special effects, and possibly the world's first electronic score. ( )

A planet's last surviving colonist doesn't want to be rescued.

Star Trek wishes it could be Forbidden Planet. (At least, that's the case when Star Trek is at its best. Somebody should force J.J. Abrams and his writers to watch this movie a few hundred times.)
