Mysterious Island

1961

Cy Endfield
Director
Columbia Pictures
Production Company

After escaping a confederate jail in a hot air balloon, a group of Yankee soldiers (and others) find themselves lost on a mysterious island...and they are not alone.

Pleasing vehicle for Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion effects, which include an ineffectual crab, a prehistoric bird, a busy bee and an undersea thingy with tentacles.
