Journey to the Centre of the Earth (1959)

Henry Levin directs James Mason, Pat Boone and Arlene Dahl in this adventure movie where an expedition of scientists travel through secret tunnels deep beyond the planet’s surface.

The least creaky, swiftest moving of these antique blockbusters. Chunky, blocky movie magic and a plot that piles on wonder and threats helps. Some lovely location work of old Edinburgh seals the deal.
