My Memory May Be Vague About This Movie
28 August 2001 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

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.
