Forbidden Planet (1956)

4 corrected entries

Corrected entry: While Adams is wearing the plastic educator machine's sensors on his forehead, he reaches for the creation lever. Morbius stops him and the sensors are suddenly retracted from his head.


Correction: Morbius moves the unit away as he stops the commander from using the intelligence booster. For this reason, in the next shot it appears retracted.


Corrected entry: Just before his death, Dr. Morbius tells Cmdr. Adams that they must be 100 million miles away in 24 hours to be safe. By my calculations, they'd have to travel at 4,166,666 MPH to get that far away in the time allowed. Kinda makes light speed seem like child's play.

Correction: Well, while your calculations are entirely reasonable, your knowledge appears to be somewhat lacking. That's less than one percent of the speed of light, which tops out at a remarkable 671 million miles per hour.


Corrected entry: Robby insists that the crew wear seatbelts when they get on the transport for the first time, but when they arrive at Morbius' dwelling, none of them are wearing seat belts.


Correction: When they arrive at the residence, you can see them unbuckle their seatbelts, except for the middle passenger that had no seat.

Corrected entry: When the id monster is melting the protective door and parts of the molten door starts to fall to the floor, you can see a person through the resulting holes who is moving around and presumably pushing parts of the door to make them fall through. This happens about 5-10 minutes from the end of the film.

Correction: I have watched this scene several times and at no point is a person visible through the hole.
