space - the final frontier

Gene Roddenberry noted in his autobiography that Star Trek was inspired by this the 1956 movie FORBIDDEN PLANET. If you watch the movie you'll see some influences on the original Star Trek television series. The movie had it's own influence - a similar plot based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest.

If you like science fiction, this is a good one to watch. It's got a great cast, great story, a nothing with deep foot prints, and ideas that sparked many directors of science fiction since.
