(1956, Fred McLeod Wilcox) It’s too bad that Leslie Nielsen’s space explorers haven’t packed their Freud – or The Tempest – when they discover Walter Pidgeon and daughter Anne Francis as sole survivors from a previous expedition to Altair 4 (filling in for the Bard’s remote island) – plus, of course, faithful retainer Robbie the Robot, the R2-D2/C-3PO of his day. DCP. Approx. 98 mins.
“One of the most ambitious and intelligent films of its genre.”
– Leonard Maltin
