In this sci-fi classic a starship crew goes to investigate the silence of a planet's colony only to find two survivors and a deadly secret.

This cult-classic sci-fi thriller was the first major motion picture to feature an all-electronic film score, composed by Louis and Bebe Barron, two pioneers in the field of electronic music. We screen this film in association with our current exhibition Sensory Agents.

A spacecraft travels to the distant planet Altair IV to discover the fate of a group of scientists sent there decades earlier. When Commander John J. Adams (Leslie Nielsen) and his crew arrive, they discover only two people: Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) and his daughter, Altaira (Anne Francis), who was born on the remote planet. Soon, Adams begins to uncover the mystery of what happened on Altair IV, and why Morbius and Altaira are the sole survivors.

US, 1956, Colour, 98min., Rated G, Dir. Fred M. Wilcox
