When a crew of astronauts led by Commander Adams (Leslie Nielsen) journeys to the planet Altair IV in search of the previous expedition, they encounter the three remaining inhabitants (Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Robby the Robot) and a mysterious invisible force that could destroy them all! This groundbreaking sci-fi spectacle (inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest) is just as awe-inspiring and entertaining as any modern blockbuster.
