Monday Night at the Movies - A to Z

Make some popcorn to enjoy the sci-fi thriller Forbidden Planet starring Walter Pidgeon and Leslie Nielson (before he took on comedic roles).

Expand my horizon. What's your favorite movie that starts with the letter F?


  1. Last year Mike Warshaw and I ran into Leslie Neilson in Framingham and had a chance to have a few beers with him at the hotel bar-- he was delighted that we wanted to talk about Forbidden Planet instead of the Naked Gun movies.

    He was truly a class act.

    His assistant took a picture of all of us together with my phone which we have (of course) lost.

    But the memory lives on! He was a terrific guy.

  2. Refreshing to hear Mr. Neilson wasn't so full of himself as with other celebrities nowadays. So great you got a chance to not only meet him, but spend a bit of time with him. Too bad about the picture, but as you said you have the memory of that day.

  3. Father of the Bride. The real one with Spencer Tracy.
