Mysterious Island (Columbia 1961 with Michael Craig, Joan Greenwood and Herbert Lom)
British science fiction movie, based on the novel by Jules Verne, with Michael Craig and Michael Callan as soldiers whose bid to escape from the American Civil War takes them (involuntarily) to a South Seas island. Here, accompanied by three other renegades, they encounter two beautiful English ladies who’ve been shipwrecked and a host of less-than-beautiful monsters.
A fabulous behind the scenes crew lift this to something special.
