As the raft is caught in the whirlpool, a thunderstorm, complete with rain and lightning, breaks out. Even given the fantasy aspects of the film, there is no possibility that a thunderstorm, which requires an active atmosphere with clouds, could occur in the center of the Earth. See more »
I have always loved this movie. I have it on tape and have almost worn it out. Time to look for a DVD. THe performances are top notch. Even though Pat Boone falls in and out of his accent he does a creditable job as a Scot. Looks very dashing in the Glendarroch tartan! Jenny sounds like she's from America. They needed a scene where someone explains that Jenny is Uncle Oliver's niece from Kansas.
Arlene Dahl was always a favorite in the 50s and 60s as a strong woman. James Mason is excellent as always. Loved the duck, Gertrude! When I saw this movie as a child, I wanted a duck for a pet. My mother was smart enough to refuse.
