When i first saw this film on DVD i thought, wow! Its great, its got my favourite actress Joan Fontaine who is really good in it and i'm glad Irwin Allen considered her for the role because its a good movie for all these stars. This film was a major box office hit in 1961 and a big cult classic to this day. The sets have dated but thats part of the fun, its best viewed on DVD with the widescreen presentation. Walter Pidgeon is quite good as the captain and 'Jeannie' Barbara Eden is quite good in one of her first roles, i think. Frankie Avalon does a beautiful entry for the films title song. Its mystery and actually quite sad. The ending of the film came a big shock to me as the saboteur came out of the radioactive engine room. You'll never guess who it is!
Watch this film i highly recommend it, sure the story is quite far fetched but sit back and relax, this film has more intelligence and acting power than any new movie like 'Dude Wheres My Car' or American Pie. See this film for great veterans (Fontaine, Pidgeon, Peter Lorre!, Eden and Avalon). 10/10
