Bernard Herrmann's classic score for 20th Century Fox's 1959 telling of Jules Verne's epic adventure tale makes a return in the VarÔøΩse 500 series! We are bringing back the deluxe expanded edition of this brilliant score that we prepared for our Bernard Herrmann At 20th Century Fox box set back in 2011. Over 72 minutes of classic Herrmann. Truly mammoth! Liner notes by Steven C. Smith (author of A Heart at Fire's Center: The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann).
A geologist (James Mason) and his assistant (Pat Boone) set off on an expedition to the center of the earth. Following directions found in an inscription hidden in volcanic rock, the explorers travel to a volcano in Iceland to begin their journey. Along the way, a widow of a famous scientist (Arlene Dahl) and an Icelander (Peter Ronson) join their party. However, the treacherous terrain and prehistoric monsters are not their only concern when a rival scientist (Thayer David) is on their trail.
