I saw this one when it first came out (and I was about 9 years old) and was hugely impressed with it, though I couldn't understand why they needed to add a girl to the plot. 40 some odd years later, I am still impressed by what they achieved in the way of plot, acting, and even the special effects still look not bad, but I still don't really see why they felt the need for adding a woman to the mix.<G> But Arlene Dahl is good enough in the part that I no longer feel bothered by it. James Mason is excellent as always, Pat Boone is not, but sings nicely, and the villain is villainous, and comes to a fitting ending, though i do regret that they left out the encounter with the ocean going monsters from the tale. All in all, a very pleasant way to spend part of your day.
