Not nearly as good as I remembered it as a teenager.

The definition of "hokey".

Fair - Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959) 132 min. Filmed in Cinemascope, the Pan & Scan treatment of this print is tragic to say the least. The film itself is a fine adaptation of Jules Verne's story of scientists travelling to the center of the Earth. Though James Mason adds a certain sophistication to the film, the film's lengthy drawn-out travel scenes, and the live lizards made-out to be giant monsters bring this epic to its knees. The film earned three Oscar nominations in 1960 including Special Effects, Art Direction and Sound. OPL needs a DVD wide-screen version of this film for a better look.
