Only my opinion, but I think its the best of the lot...
I saw this at the drive-in when i was 8 yrs old. i loved it. i have seen it many times since then and it remains, so far, the best adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel; Michael York is a likable and stalwart hero. Burt Lancaster is fantastic as the domineering and obsessive scientist. Nigel Hawthorne (love that guy) is there to provide ever reliable support as the sinister Montgomery. The lovely and ravishing Barbara Carrera manges to be both lovely and quite ravishing. Richard Basehart makes a grand Sayer of the Law.The make up effects are impressive for their time and help contribute a lot to the effectiveness of THE ISLAND OF DR MOREAU. Bravo to all involved.
