Mysterious Island (UK: Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island) is a 1961 film. Based very loosely upon the novel The Mysterious Island (L’Île mystérieuse) by Jules Verne, the film was produced by Charles H. Schneer and directed by Cy Endfield. The motion picture was filmed at Shepperton Studios, Shepperton, England as a showcase for Harryhausen’s stop-motion animation effects. Like several of Harryhausen’s classic productions, the musical score was composed by Bernard Herrmann. All the model creatures except the giant bird (which was cannibalized for use as the Ornithomimus in The Valley of Gwangi in 1969) still exist.”
