Superb Special Effects, courtesy George Pal, but Peter Sellers and Terry-Thomas almost steal the movie

This movie deservedly won the Oscar for its Special Effects. Russ Tamblyn was well-cast as tom. The romantic sub-plot is superfluous and Terry-Thomas and Peter Sellers all but steal the movie as a bumbling pair of thieves. Funny enjoyable puffball of a movie. Well worth watching for the effects and Sellers and Thomas.
