Mysterious Island (1961) – Jules Verne’s sequel to his own Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea – is brought to the screen in spectacular fashion by director Cy Endfield (Zulu) and special effects master Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts), who weave the adventure-packed tale of a motley crew of Civil War escapees and shipwreck victims cast away on a remote Pacific isle. There they encounter the redoubtable mad genius, Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom), and the startling products of his scientific experiments: gigantic creatures of every description, all crafted with that special brand of Harryhausen magic. Presented in a pristine new transfer, with Bernard Herrmann’s superlative score featured as an isolated track.
