A dutiful robot named Robby speaks 188 languages. An underground lair offers evidence of an advanced civilization. Planet is a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Leslie Nielsen plays the commander who brings his space cruiser crew to the green-skied world that's home to Dr. Morbius, his daughter...and to a mysterious terror.
THE GREEN SLIME (G, 1968, 90 min)
