When the sailor accosts Charles Bronson and his party in their stateroom, his pistol switches positions between shots. In the first shot he is holding the pistol in his right hand and resting it on his left hand, leveled at his waist and in the next shot he is holding the pistol only with the right hand in a raised position, at about chest height. It switches back and forth twice. His position in the doorway also changes between shots. See more »

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.
