The French dirigible airship does not appear in the film's source Ian Cameron 1961 novel "The Lost Ones" but in the original work there is still a flying machine but it is a helicopter. The book is set in 1960 when the helicopter had been invented but choppers were not around in the 1907 time-frame of the film version. See more »

This is a good example of the Disney Studio's at there best. A light fantasy with good photography and acting. David Hartman does a passable job in his lone movie staring role. Interesting story with just enough action to hold the viewers attention. A good addition to any library and worth viewing annually. Great family fare with its "G" rating. I rated this an 8.
