Jules Verne’s classic adventure tale about a band of intrepid explorers descending to the hidden reaches of our world is brought to the screen in phantasmagoric CinemaScope® with Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959). Braving exploding volcanoes, tumbling rockslides, and flesh-eating reptiles, James Mason stars as a courageous if irascible geologist, Pat Boone as his indomitable young assistant, and Arlene Dahl as a lovely widow who becomes an invaluable colleague on their voyage of discovery. Highlighting the perilous exploits is Bernard Herrmann’s titanic score (available here as an isolated track), a landmark masterpiece of fantasy film music. All these delights and more are available on this Twilight Time release via a brand-new 4K restoration.
