Robur dangles Strock and Evans from the Albatross dirigible on ropes as a punishment. A storm comes, he clearly sees that, but insists to crew-members that the punishment still continue as he leaves for the bridge to tackle the storm. The storm duly tackled, he then "suddenly" remembers that he has left the two men dangling throughout the storm - but logically he knew that all along by ensuring that the punishment still continue on seeing the storm begin.

So, you survived to once more knuckle down to him. No good to smile at me, Mr. Strock, I heard you promise not to interfere with him.

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.
