"They Dont Make Them Like This Anymore"
5 stars"

When I was a young lad my father read me the book of this story and it became one of those personal favourites Ive always loved. The Great James Mason leads this adventure which in 1959 cost 20th Century Fox a bundle for its day,for one particular scene you will see immediately where Gearge Lucas and Steven Speilberg came up with a certain scene for Raiders Of The Lost Ark,yet considering the movie is over 2 hours long you find yourself captivated and along for the ride as these bold travellers journey towards the centre of the earth,interestingly in 1974 Rick Wakeman recorded a live musical version of this story and it itself is a stunning piece of work.This is a worth while item to add to your collection,if you love movies of old where the impossible was made to look possible then you wont be dissapointed.

Description

fabulous world below the world. JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH is based on Jules Verne's 1864 novel. A scientist heads out on a treacherous journey to the center of the earth. With him are an intrepid student, an Icelandic guide and the widow of a geologist who steals his information in an attempt to beat him to the earth's core. Along the way the group are confronted by all manner of dangerous obstacles: excessive heat and cold, gale force winds, and tremendous floods.

Review

"James Mason plays Professor Oliver Lindenbrook, a scientist hoping to find the world's core in this 1959 adaptation of the Jules Verne novel. He leads his unusual party on an expedition to the center of the earth, by way of a volcano in Iceland. On the way, they encounter enormous mushrooms and giant prehistoric monsters. Produced by Michael Todd with then-spectacular special effects, the story was modernized to 1950s sensibilities. Mason gives this class, while Arlene Dahl and Diane Baker are the romantic interests. And Pat Boone is more palatable than you might expect as a secondary lead. You can watch this with your children and not be bored, and they will surely love it." --Rochelle O'Gorman
