Just before the warship is bombed, Robur observes it through the scope. The view shown of an approaching sailing ship is clearly filmed from sea level. A moment later he looks again and the view is from above. See more »
[debating with Robur over dinner]
And you expect us to believe, sir, that because you gave that ship warning, that your actions of this afternoon were justifiable?

Not the best of Vincent Price on American International
Being a huge Vincent Price fan, I must said that "Master of the World" is not on my top 5 movies of his American International period. The film lacks real excitement, the low budget is clear, and the combination of two different stories by Jules Verne didn't work properly (the comedy touches are completely out of place, and are NOT part of the original novels) But once again, the man is in complete control of his character and delivers a solid performance. Is also good to see Henry Hull (the first werewolf of Hollywood) and a young but convincing Charles Bronson. No matter what, the film deserves a DVD rendition, as many other Vincent Price films like "Shock", "Diary of a Madman" and "The Mad Magician", to name a few.
