Journey to the Center of the Earth

Henry Levin's 1959 cinematic adaptation of Journey to the Center of the Earth comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo, and a Spanish soundtrack is available in Dolby Digital Mono. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but this 20th Century Fox release boasts better than expected visual quality.

I love the story telling and characters in this story. The book was excellent and the video is played at my house often enough that we'll probably need to buy another DVD! This is one of my favorite SF classics.

I bought this dvd because I had seen this film as a kid and remembered it over the years. In that regard it has been unforgettable. For the time it was for me another Wizard of Oz. Though special effects have long surpassed those in the film, the story and plot still holds firm. The cast was wonderful and even Pat Boone seemed to fit in. This is still the best version of the film made even though there seems to have been thousands. The effects may not hold the younger audience, but then again they always seem to surprise me by what they like. I would recommend this to all ages.

This movie was worthy of going to DVD in 1959 right after its release. A Cinematic Gem, then and now! The story, the actors and the setting and time worked so well together that makes any ''remakes'' impossible
