With three adaptations of Jules Verne's adventure currently in the works, Richard Fleischer's defining version of the beloved story seems timelier than ever. Disney's Academy Award®-winning spectacle is an effects extravaganza featuring Kirk Douglas, Paul Lukas and Peter Lorre as shipwrecked survivors taken captive by the mysterious Captain Nemo (James Mason). Nemo wavers between genius and madman, willing to stop at nothing to complete his deadly crusade across the Seven Seas. The film's epic giant squid fight scene is not to be missed on the big screen, nor is Douglas' rendition of "A Whale of a Tale," a rare on-screen singing performance. DIR Richard Fleischer; SCR Earl Felton, from the novel by Jules Verne; PROD Walt Disney. U.S., 1954, color, 127 min. NOT RATED
