    Journey To The Center Of The Earth is now available on DVD. The sound mix is DD 2.0 Surround. Is anyone aware of the possibility of a DD 5.1 Special Edition of this wonderfully adventurous movie of the 1950’s? Thank you.

    The region 1 release of the Fox film Journey to the Center of the Earth IS in stereo for the English track. Only the French and Spanish are mono.
    EDIT - you changed your original post. Yes, as noted below, the DVD is in 4.0 and is an accurate replication of the original magnetic stereo sound. No need for a 5.1 remix.

    Actually, it's DD 4.0. Also I believe this question would be better answered in the SOFTWARE section.

    Tino is correct in that the audio is presented in Dolby Digital discrete 4.0, which accurately duplicates the original 4-channel mag stereo audio from it's original theatrical release. But note the DVD case is mistakenly labeled as "Dolby Surround" instead of Dolby Digital 4.0.

    I have never seen this film before and started watching it last night. I was taken aback when suddenly a male character started playing the piano and then started singing while another female character was all goggle-eyed. Is this a musical? [​IMG]

    The first frame shows it is set sometime in the 1880’s thereby making it a period piece. But the costumes and set pieces tell otherwise.

    Okay, those are just my initial thoughts. I sure hope the film gets better from here.

    Edwin: You just have to look at this film for what it is: a Hollywood adventure epic that reflects the time in which it was made. Most of us love it for the sentimental value and the memories. Taken on its own level, the movie is fun, saccharine, and sometimes evocative of a sense of wonder. A fantasy. Cringe-inducing moments when Pat Boone sings, but you smile anyway. That sort of thing.
