The original green tint of the "lost continent" sequences was not reproduced for television prints of the film (the sequences were shown in black-and-white instead), and it was not until well over 30 years after the film's initial release that the tint was restored for home video in the late 1980s.

When the plane loses power and starts to go down, the men seated on the port side of the cabin are shown clinging to their seats against the angle of descent, the tail end on the left higher than the nose on the right. (This is also consistent with the shot of the cockpit from the starboard side, showing the angle of the plane high on the left, toward the tail, sloping down to the nose to the right.) The shot of the men on the starboard side of the cabin should show the same angle of descent in reverse: the plunging nose on the left, the higher tail on the right. But instead, the shot of the starboard side shows the same tilt as the port side - higher tail on the left, lower nose on the right - which, taken literally, would mean the starboard side of the plane was plummeting to the ground in the opposite direction of the port side.

The first and last time I saw this movie was the early 1960's, if not before then. So I saw it through the eyes of a young person. I enjoyed this movie and once in a while would give it a thought that I would like to see it again. It was neat seeing Sid Melton in this movie as he was one of my favorite characters on the TV series CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT, where he played Ichabod Mudd. If I saw it today I might think it was hokey, but back then the special effects to me were very good.
I gave it a 6 rating.
