Storyline

Doctor Gulliver is poor, so nothing - not even his charming fiancée Elisabeth - keeps him in the town he lives. He signs on to a ship to India, but in a storm he's washed off the ship and ends up on an island, which is inhibitated by very tiny people. After he managed to convince them he's harmless and is accepted as one of their citizens, their king wants to use him in war against a people of giants. Compared to them, even Gulliver is a gnome.

Trivia

As of this film's production, both Ray Harryhausen (the creator of special visual effects) and producer Charles H. Schneer decided to make their permanent homes in London. This was not only because of Harryhausen's love for the exotic European locales he would use in all of his future projects, but it was also cheaper to make his kind of movies there. Harryhausen lived in London ever after, whereas Schneer lived there for 45 years before moving to Florida in 2005, four years before his own passing. See more »

Travels To Liliput.
1 November 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jack Sher directed this kid-friendly version of the famous novel by Jonathan Swift, which stars Kerwin Mathews as Dr. Gulliver, who hates being poor, so signs on a ship headed to India to make his fortune. Sadly, he is washed overboard in a storm, and finds himself in the land of Liliput, where he is a giant to the miniature human inhabitants. At first treated as a threat, he is later made a hero, though the paranoid and ungrateful emperor turns against him when Gulliver refuses to help him win a remarkably trivial war against his neighbors, who aren't much better either... Good F/X by Ray Harryhausen, but film is otherwise uninspired and forgettable, though some of the novel's satire does remain, just not enough.
