Forbidden Planet is a surprisingly watchable science fiction film from 1956. A spaceship commanded by Leslie Nielsen visits the planet Altair 4, the sole inhabitants of which are Dr Morbius played by Walter Pidgeon, his hotty daughter Altaira played by Anne Francis, and Robby the Robot. This painting is based on one of a series of publicity pictures featuring Robby and Altaira.
