Hi, Jennifer!
This made my brain hurt in a good way! "Forbidden Planet gives a Freudian twist to the narrative by making its monster an uncontrolled embodiment of the id, the dark, brutish part of Morbius that the scientist thinks he has banished by his experiments with advanced alien technology. As it turns out, Morbius has only accomplished a Jekyll and Hyde kind of separation of the higher and lower parts of his nature; without the yoke of his rational and ethical thoughts, the id runs amok." I'll never look at this genre the same way again. 

One of my favorite movie posters from this genre and movie monsters. It just depicts all that the 50s, monster movies represented and why they packed Drive-Ins every weekend.

I was so glad to see so many Sci-Fi then Monster films chosen for the 50s Blogathon. Certainly what I think about when I think of the 50s. (before my time but I did go to the Drive-In a lot as a kid where this type of film was played, to our delight.)

A highly enjoyable review. Well done.

Thanks for sharing your tour of Hollywood and everything that makes it so enjoyable.
Growing up in southern California we were fortunate enough to visit Grauman's and the Hollywood Walk of Fame often. I'm not sure if the same car museum is still there but visiting and seeing the Beverly Hillbillies, Munsters, James Bond movie cars was one of my favorite memories. At that time, an exact replica of James Dean's silver Viper was right as you walked in. 
One thing I will always remember, regret is, during the 70s the footprints at Grauman's were still mostly classic Hollywood stars. The heavyweights like Gable and Harlow.  The last time I visited with my sister in the 90s it seemed like recent stars, those popular at the time, had a prominent spot there and the big named, classic stars were moved to a lesser viewed spot. That made me sad. And of course, I'll never forgive them for removing Chaplin's footprints then losing them.

I haven't been to Tussaud's in LA. Only seen the one in San Antonio so I enjoyed your photos. Love seeing Desmond stealing the show. ha ha
What a fun post which brought back so many great memories.

Hollywood is naturally the Mecca of every classic movie fan, but for many of us visiting in person is difficult, if not impossible. I have been reading lucky travelers' blog posts and admiring photos of the Walk of Fame for y...
