Library Film Series
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)
Tuesday, February 7, 2012
North Conference Room (W449), 4th floor, West Wing, MSU Main Library
Presented by Michael Velbel, Department of Geological Sciences
"Journey to the Center of the Earth is a grand adventure story with charismatic performances, imaginative production design, and a superb Bernard Herrmann score that enhances the film's sense of wonder. The high point in veteran director Henry Levin's career, Journey wisely veers away from the procedural nature of the Jules Verne source novel, adding a central conflict and more diverse character development." (from allrovi.com)
Cosponsored by the MSU Museum in coordination with Darwin Discovery Day.
Free and open to the public.
