Forbidden Planet

The Novelization of the Classic 1956 Sci Fi MovieFarrar Straus Giroux Inc 1956FORBIDDEN PLANETby Philip MacDonaldas W J StuartPOWER MAD DR MORBIUS MUST BE STOPPED BEFORE HE ENSLAVES THE WORLDCommander Adams and the crew of Spaceship C 57 D land on Altair 4 the forbidden planet where they hope to find the survivors of a I m amazed and grateful that Peril Press dug up this 1950s novelization of one of my favorite classic movies and made it available as an ebook I also appreciate the way the author takes the story from the film and without significant changes puts a new angle on it He does this mainly by shifting the point of view from which the story is told In the film the protagonist is clearly Captain Adams young Leslie Nielsen as a proto James T Kirk In the book though Adams is kind of an immature jerk and most of the story is told from the point of view of the older experienced Doc Ostrow This pushes several scenes from the film off camera from the book s perspective but it also gives insight into the wider world the characters live inOf course despite it being the future it s still the 50s so everyone smokes and girls are just something pretty to chase after Nevertheless the writing is above pulp and the freedom of text over mid century film censors lets MacDonald push the envelope with the gruesomeness of the monster scenes even though they take up less real estate in the novel than in the movieAll in all a great blast from the past
