Master of the World (Special Edition)
Directed by William Witney
From action-adventure ace William Witney, the director of Daredevils of the Red Circle, Adventures of Captain Marvel, Trigger, Jr. and Sunset in the West, comes this high-flying sci-fi spectacular starring screen legend Vincent Price (House of the Long Shadows, Scream and Scream Again). A mad inventor known only as Robur (Price) kidnaps a team on a government expedition to investigate a mysterious crater in Pennsylvania. The team is taken aboard Robur’s fantastically engineered airship, the “Albatross,” which Robur plans to fly around the world to various military installations in his desperate desire to eradicate weapons of mass destruction, thereby bringing about world peace. The kidnapped team’s leader, John Strock (Charles Bronson, Mr. Majestyk, Breakheart Pass), responds by planning an uprising. Henry Hull (Lifeboat), Mary Webster (The Tin Star) and David Frankham (Tales of Terror) co-star in this astonishing airborne adventure scripted by Richard Matheson (The Last Man on Earth) from the classic Jules Verne novels Robur the Conqueror and Master of the World.
