Try 2: The Mysterious Island, 1961 version

I'm on a Jules Verne kick.

Not sure why since the last few adaptations have been horrendous.

So far, this one is better.

Still have a few giant animals (maybe I need to re-read the book?), but better.

Although, it's definitely showing it's age.

Apparently the womenfolk are only good for adding 'homey touches' to the cave, while the men do real work.

Oh, and fainting.
I wish the huge turkey (chicken? some type of fowl?) had killed the hysterical female character. At least her aunt had enough sense to attack the thing instead of screaming like a ninny.
