MASTER OF THE WORLD / American International Pictures - 1961
It's Master Of The World Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Here's a flick Eegah!! and I saw at the Sierra Theater back in 1961, we thought it was an okay sci-fi adventure, it was based on two Jules Verne novels and starred the great Vincent Price. Problems arose during production due to budgetary restraints, the budget was $500,000.
Eegah!! sent over this sound clip of the theme and more for us to check out, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the old bomb drop, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... MASTER OF THE WORLD
Here's Vinnie as Captain Robur, giving details about his fantastic airship, The Albatross, to a small group of acquaintances who become his imprisoned crew of "air sailors" that includes Henry (THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON) Hull, Charles (HOUSE OF WAX) Bronson and Wally (BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE) Campo.
Speaking of The Albatross, this is a pic showing it off as it magnificently travels through the air.
The cook has a job even more important than just cooking... COMEDY RELIEF!!
I'd really like to have a Heightmeter for the Dungeon since I have acute height-tra-phobia!
The mission of The Albatross is to confront warring factions around the world and bomb the crap out of them, and, it does its job in stunning fashion due to a special bomb sight!!
Portrait of the deadly serious humanitarian, Captain Robur...
John and Phillip have displeased Captain Robur and are also fighting over the female love interest, Dorothy. So, the cap drops them down on ropes from the airship and proceeds to give them and the viewers one wild ride! Oops, the rope broke!
Robur goes to the mid-east to try and end some conflicts there!.. Good fucking luck!
It all ends in disaster for Captain Robur and The Albatross! Part 2 was planned but it never happened... Tune in Wednesday for more from the Dungeon Crew!
