Oh no!Not my mother!
29 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Although Verne's famous novel has been filmed many many times,this one made number one at the 1956 French box office ;it was so commercially successful that a sequel was made afterward.

Okay ,Curd Jurgends (41) is too old for the part of the dashing young officer but he is efficient and handsome and he and Genevieve Page make a nice pair.You can notice other lovely actresses in supporting parts:Sylva Koscina ,the sword and sandal queen ,and Françoise Fabian ,who would turn into a rather intellectual thespian as the years went passing by .Sylvie ,a seasoned actress ,appears as Marfa Strogoff.

The screenplay is faithful to the novel,including the famous scene of torture with the red-hot iron .

Gallone's effort thoroughly deserved its success ;it was made for the whole family and can,from that point of view,be considered good Entertainment.
