Title: Best George Pal
Description: What is the best George Pal movie?

George Pal was the science fiction master of Hollywood's early sound era. All other Sci-Fi producers were relegated to "B movie" status while Pal generally had relatively large "A movie" budgets (although still not large by today's standards). Most of his movies still hold up well even by today's standards although some are obviously hurt by poor effects or dated.
I have asked what your top three are because I did not want a landslide but a more even race so as to be able to "rank" the movies.
Please feel free to comment and any and all of the movies.

It's hard to beat Time Machine or War of the Worlds... but all of his films are fantastic!

Yes, I expected that those would run away with the votes, which is why I alotted a "top three" vote. I would like to know which other Pals are really worth seeing. When Worlds Collide has received a vote and so has the often maligned Doc Savage, which I personally thought was great campy fun!

WAR OF THE WORLDS, best among many fine entries. THE TIME MACHINE would probably be my second choice, but most are well worth seeing.

Has anyone ever seen THE POWER or ATLANTIS? I cannot find these two movies anywhere but would like to see them. Any reviews would be appreciated.

When Worlds Collide will always be one of my favorites! As will War Of The Worlds. I also had to vote for Doc Savage, just because I found it so much fun. I never liked Ron Ely as Tarzan, but he was perfect as The Man of Bronze! Have no fear, Doc Savage is here! Yeah!!!

I had the pleasure of seeing THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM in its original Cinerama presentation, and I think that George Pal outdid himself with this film. It loses an awful lot being relegated to a small television screen, and even on my 15' Home Theater Screen it just doesn't seem to have that magic that it did on the huge Cinerama screen. I voted for this film, along with my all-time favorite WAR OF THE WORLDS and DESTINATION MOON.
