Mysterious Island (1961), based on the book by Jules Verne, was produced by Charles Schneer and visual effects genius Ray Harryhausen. Set during the American Civil War, the film centers around escaping soldiers in a hot air balloon who end up crashing in the ocean, only to find themselves washed up on an unknown island where gigantic animals abound (courtesy of Harryhausen''s magic). Famed Captain Nemo, evil pirates, and a volcanic eruption add to the exotic adventure.
Hermann''s wildly diverse and wonderfully descriptive score runs the gamut from the grandly epic to the exhilaratingly quirky to the ethereally beautiful as he captures the essence of majesty, monsters, and mystery. "Few people can capture so well that rather elusive individuality," Harryhausen himself said of the new rerecording. "But this inaugural recording... of Herrmann''s complete Mysterious Island score has achieved this."
Included in the CD''s 32-page, full-color booklet are observations from Harryhausen, composer Christopher Young, film historian Bruce Crawford, The Bernard Herrmann Society''s Gunther Kogebehn, and artist Craig Reardon. The comprehensive liner notes are by composer/conductor Kevin Scott.
