The day kicks off with a real classic. Groundbreaking special effects that still look good today, a unique score thatâ€™s more electronic bleeps than music but fits the film perfectly, and a cool monster â€“ what more could you ask for? How about Leslie Nielsen as a proto-Kirk, heâ€™s even got James Tâ€™s eye for the ladies, or Walter Pidgeon as mad scientist Doctor Edward Morbius, or one of cinemas most memorable robots in Robby? The only bum note is Anne Francis who lacks the innocence to make the Altaira character believable, coming across as a bit of a flirt.
