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.

I admire you, Mr. Strock. You do what you feel you must do without caring whether you alienate anyone or whether they understand you or not. That is my way. That is the only way for a man of dedication. I know that you would like to stop me, sir. For that reason, my impulse is to have you destroyed. My desire on the other hand is to have you join me.

Based on two Jules Verne novels. This is an exciting action adventure with an emphasis on world domination and flying machines. The evil Robur (Vincent Price) is the navigator of an airplane ship hell-bent on destructing all of the worlds war machines and armies for the purpose of peace on earth (what a mad case). He must be stopped by Strock (Charles Bronson) a government man whose tough but level headed.
The effects are brilliant for an early 60's film and the screenplay and music is spot on. This is a lot of fun.
