"Atlantis The Lost Continent" Tony's Comments:
After a brief un-credited appearance as a military pilot in the Richard Burton war drama "Ice Palace" (1960), songwriter/actor Anthony Hall (also known as Sal Ponti) made his film debut with a starring role as Greek fisherman Demetrios in the George Pal fantasy adventure "Atlantis The Lost Continent". After rescuing an Atlantean princess, Demetrios must travel beyond the Pillars of Hercules to take her home. Expecting to receive a reward all he gets for his troubles is enslavement and is forced to fight in the arena to undergo the ordeal of fire and water. The fantastic George Pal special effects put this sword and sandal spectacular a notch above other films of the same genre. "Atlantis The Lost Continent" is 90 minutes of entertaining escapism and after all these years is possibly still the definitive film to depict the ancient lost city of Atlantis.
