Island At The Top Of The World is a seemingly forgotten Disney live-action classic. It was directed by one of Disney's most profitable filmmakers, Robert Stevenson. The film is one of the last he made for the company and tells the adventure of a millionaire's search for his lost son. He enlists the help of an American researcher/adventurer and together they set off in a zeppelin towards the arctic following the son's trail. The search turns into high adventure when a lost civilisation is found on an undiscovered island. It's a wonderful adventure with a very Jules Verne-esque flavour. What I love most about this movie is it's special fx. Made in 1972, it makes use of matted back drops, chroma key and miniature models which give the story a fantastical aesthetic. Given that this discovered world is new to the characters, it adds to the viewers sense of discovery when it all looks so foreign. A well made film that deserves a few runs on a Saturday afternoon to introduce it to a new generation.
