Floor reinforced?

I find that photo a bit scary, actually. Remember, the Krell built a machine that destroyed their civilization.

I am sensing I will need to consult the canons of the Wookieepedia to appreciate this reference.

Forbidden Planet is the movie reference. The Krell were a super race that did themselves in by releasing Monsters from the Id that destroyed them all. Great 50’s movie starring Walter Pigeon and Leslie Nielsen with a wonderful Theramin based soundtrack.

And it is where Krell (the company) got its name. So not really off topic. “Monsters from the Id” indeed.


#9

That’s really where the name comes from? That’s delightful! Thanks, guys, this is a hoot.


#10

That’s the story I’ve heard many times and suspect it is true. I think it’s meant to imply “limitless power”. The movie is quite amusing and worth watching some time unless you hate the genre (the robot in the movie also became a prototype for many future movie/TV robots).


#11

Yes, it is true. Many years ago at one of the Stereophile shows I asked Dan D about it.

It was (and is) a great movie BTW. Still holds up.

Uhh, and how could you possibly forget Anne Francis?

PS: Oh, and from the Theramin Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theremin

A theremin was not used for the soundtrack of Forbidden Planet, for which Louis and Bebe Barron built disposable oscillator circuits and a ring modulator to create the electronic tonalities used in the film.[39][40]

Oh, I DIDN'T forget Anne Francis, just trying to keep the (ahem) focus properly placed. As for the Theramin, you learn something new every day!
