Octavo, boards. First edition. Novelization of the 1956 MGM film starring Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen, Anne Francis, and Robby the Robot. "The film's lasting importance as science fiction . derives in great part from the fact that its story is the stuff of written SF of the period -- a fact underscored by W. J. Stuart's novelization, which treats the film's theme in greater depth and with the seriousness it deserves." - Gunn (ed), The New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, p. 178. The film's plot, an updated version of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," is "very sophisticated for the time -- astonishingly so for a film originally designed for a juvenile audience . The visual treatment of 'Forbidden Planet' was unsurpassed until '2001: A Space Odyssey,' made 12 years later. Despite its flaws, it remains one of the few masterpieces of SF cinema." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 437. A near fine copy in very good plus dust jacket with small closed tear to upper front panel, rubbing to spine folds, and mild rubbing and shelf wear at upper spine end. (#126433).
