Forbidden Planet

Starship C57D travels to planet Altair 4 in search of the crew of spaceship "Bellerophon", a scientific expedition that has been missing for 20 years, only to find themselves unwelcome by the expedition's lone survivor and warned of destruction by an invisible force if they don't turn back immediately.

For the time this movie was made, it was ahead of anything that was produced back then and even now it shames many so-called top class SF movies.  Fantastic story, stunning effects for the year it was made, great cast and not forgetting the inimitable Robbie the Robot.  Leslie Nielsen, in a role out of character to what he eventually was famed for, along with Walter Pigeon, leads the cast on a superb adventure of epic proportions.  The one thing I am happy with, is that they haven't attempted a remake. If they did, they would have to follow the story as it plays out in the original but with the improved SFX of today.  If they alter it or change it in any way, they will ultimately ruin it.  This movie is in my current favourite top-ten movies of all-time.  If you haven't seen it, watch it.  If you love Sci-Fi, you'll love this.  Top class movie.
