Storyline

Doctor Gulliver is poor, so nothing - not even his charming fiancée Elisabeth - keeps him in the town he lives. He signs on to a ship to India, but in a storm he's washed off the ship and ends up on an island, which is inhibitated by very tiny people. After he managed to convince them he's harmless and is accepted as one of their citizens, their king wants to use him in war against a people of giants. Compared to them, even Gulliver is a gnome.

Trivia

The music for "The Three Worlds of Gulliver" was composer Bernard Herrmann's own favourite among the scores he wrote for Harryhausen and Schneer. Schneer considered "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" Herrmann's best work for one of his productions. See more »

Goofs

The costumes and sets seem to have been borrowed from other productions. In Lilliput the populous wears middle eastern garb but the sets are medieval European. In Brobdingnag the costumes range from early medieval to 16th century European, but the sets, and especially the doll house, are middle eastern. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Lemuel Gulliver: ...you don't need Reldresal or me to fight a war!
Emperor of Lilliput: Of course I don't need a prime minister to fight a war! But I need one to blame in case we lose it.

Going to War Over An Egg
6 April 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Never viewed this 1960 film dealing with Gulliver's travels and found it very enjoyable to view along with excellent photography. The story starts out with Dr. Lemuel Gulliver, (Kerwin Williams) having a fight with his girlfriend, Elizabeth, (June Thorburn) about his wanting to go aboard a ship as a doctor and she does not want him to leave. The ship sails and becomes shipwrecked and Gulliver finds himself in a completely different land where there are miniature people and he appears to them as a huge giant who must be captured and tied up. The rest of the story will hold your interest from the very beginning to the end and I almost forgot, a war was almost started over cutting an egg on the top and other people who cut their eggs on the bottom of the shell. Enjoy.
