Captain Nemo has built a fantastic submarine for his mission ofrevenge. He has traveled over 20,000 leagues in search of Charles Denver - a man who caused the death of Princess Daaker. Seeing what he had done, Denver took the daughter to his yacht and sailed away. He abandoned her and a sailor on a mysterious island and has come back after all these years to see if she is still alive and if the nightmares he has will stop. The daughter has been found by five survivors of a Union Army Balloon that crashed near the island. At sea, Professor Aronnax was aboard the ship "Abraham Lincoln" when Nemo ramed it and threw the Professor, his daughter and two others into the water. Prisoners at first, they are now treated as guests to view the underwater world and to hunt under the waves. Nemo will also tells them about the Nautilus and the revenge that has driven him for all these years. Written by (Paula Bunyon)

Running Time: 105 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: PG


A scientist goes on a voyage to investigate a sea monster;it turns out to be a submarine helmed by the mysterious Captain Nemo.

WhenI checked IMDB for some information about this movie, I discovered arather interesting fact;the entire cast of the movie is un-credited. Jules Verne's name is mentioned repeatedly, producer Carl Laemmle gets a credit, and most of the attention goes to George and Ernest Williamson, who developed the first underwater photography that was used in this movie;in fact, these two are featured in the opening ofthe movie. In some ways, this is certainly appropriate;this movie could not have been made without the work of these two, though you would think that the actor who played Nemo would at least get a credit (by the way, he's Allen Holubar).

In a sense, the movie undertakes a daunting task;not only does it take on the Verne novel ofthe title, but "Mysterious Island" as well. Furthermore, it comes up with an elaborate backstory about the history of Captain Nemo (and the credits tell us that Verne didn't tell us this part), and in some ways, that sequence is the most exciting in the movie. The structure of the movie is somewhat bizarre;in some ways, it only glosses over the two Verne novels and spends more time and energy on the characters in the backstory, plus it only tells the backstory after the most of the rest of the movie has ended. Still, it's the spectacle that rules this one, and the underwater scenes are fascinating to watch, even if things area little hard to see in them. In particular, the scenes of the diverswalking against the undertow are very memorable. However, I do feel theneed to point out that as far as squids and octopi go, you're better off with the squid fight in the Disney version than you are with the rather lame and obviously fake octopus that pops up in this one. Incidentally, one of the many un-credited cast members is none other than Noble


This early adaptation of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" is interesting, and generally entertaining, though it lacks the depth of the original story. Its strengths are the underwater effects, the settings, and the camera work,which at times are remarkable for the era. On the other hand, it makes little attempt to convey the most important themes of Verne's story, settling instead for straight forward adventure and melo-drama, which are much easier to film.
