Review by anonymous (posted on 13-May-2005)
Very few movies ever capture the
imagination as George Pal did in this movie. They do not make movies
like this anymore. I saw this movie in 1961, I was six, and never saw
it again until 1990. I never forgot how scared I was and how much it
inspired me. This is a movie that sticks with you probably because it
has a way of stirring the human spirit. Hats off to George and all the
actors, what a superb job.
