When Price comes to Bronson's bunk to discuss his joining with him, his hand rests on the railing next to Bronson's, but his hand cannot be seen when the shot switches to Bronson laying down. See more »
I admire you, Mr. Strock. You do what you feel you must do without caring whether you alienate anyone or whether they understand you or not. That is my way. That is the only way for a man of dedication. I know that you would like to stop me, sir. For that reason, my impulse is to have you destroyed. My desire on the other hand is to have you join me.

Unusually for an early 1960s American film, the opening credits do not list the director, writers, or major technical staff; only the top-billed actors are credited, followed by the title, after which the film begins. See more »
The Warner Home Video version runs 95 minutes and has no prologue sequence. The Orion Home Video version runs 99 minutes with the sequence. The laser disc version also includes the original exit music which brings the running time to 104 minutes. See more »
This is a fun movie to watch, full of charm and thinking characters in entertaining action, debate and introspection. With Vincent Price in the lead as Robur(who has declared war on warfare with his flying machine the Albatross) and Charles Bronson as his unlikely heroic nemesis Strock(almost an early era anti-hero), how can one not be intrigued? But also there's grand adventure, costumes and an 18th Century setting to boot. Also the main theme of the need to end warfare remains a very strong one and the film never loses sight of this. Just great stuff to watch.
