Master of the World is an action packed classic sci-fi fantasy film based on two stories by Jules Verne author of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and Around The World In 80 Days

Starring Vincent Price and Charles Bronson Master of the World opens In Morgantown Pennsylvania in 1868; the local residents hear a booming voice coming from the local mountain, the Great Eyrie. John Strock from the Department of the Interior is tasked with findingout just what is happening there and approaches Philip Evans for the use of his balloon which would allow him to view the mountain from air. Accompanied by Evans fiancée Dorothy Prudent and her father, they come under attack from rockets fired from inside the mountain.

They are soon the prisoners of Captain Robur, a pacifist who is in command of the Albatross, a 150 a foot-long airship. His mission in life is to stop all wars - even if he has to make war on nation states in order to achieve it.

Format: DVD
If you can overlook the underfunded special effects, the very obvious sets and the ample stock footage, Master of the World is an enjoyable matinee fantasy adventure adapted by the prolific Richard Matheson from a couple of Jules Verne's less remembered novels that plays out like an airborne version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, with Vincent Price's Nemo-esque Robur planning to end all war by destroying all armies and weapons from his giant airship, The Albatross. It obviously doubles as a time machine, since even though it's set towards the end of the 19th century it can be seen flying over Elizabethan London courtesy of stock footage from Olivier's Henry V, the Battle of Trafalgar from That Hamilton Woman via the big battle scene from Korda's The Four Feathers. It's the kind of film where the back-projection, model shots and matte paintings never convince and were probably never intended to, but have enough old-world design charm for it not to really matter, while Les Baxter offers a rather seductive score that's above and beyond the call of duty for this kind of film, though his end title song didn't make the final cut ("If he rules just one heart a man is a king/It seems as though his soul has taken wing/And like the stars that fly on high above the Earth/A man is Master of the World/When he is loved!").Read more ›

Other reviewers have summed up the film very well, I would just add that the 101 Films release is a nice quality anamorphic widescreen print.

Best print I have seen, The only thing missing is the trailer which can be found on youtube. Beware other releases, I mistakenly purchased a print that was merely a bad transfer of the old NTSC VHS version that was released by MGM some years ago, they even went so far as to make the release look legitimate by reformatting the cover from the tape box.
Anyway, this is a terrific wide screen version. The colours are crisp and clear and the costumes and sets look amazing.
Good lead role for Charles Bronson who had previously co-starred with Vincent in House Of Wax. Vincent himself does a commendable job of a man trying to make a difference to the world and you actually feel sorry for him at the end.
