20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ()

directed by
featuring Kirk Douglas, James Mason, Paul Lukas, Peter Lorre, Robert J. Wilke

This 1954 Disney version of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea represented the studio's costliest and most elaborate American-filmed effort to date. Kirk Douglas plays a trouble-shooting 19th century seaman, trying to discover why so many whaling ships have been disappearing of late. Teaming with scientist Paul Lukas and diver Peter Lorre, Douglas sets sail to investigate--and is promptly captured by the megalomaniac Captain Nemo (James Mason), who skippers a lavish, scientifically advanced submarine. The film's special effects, including a giant squid, were impressive enough in 1954 to win an Academy Award. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

This is still my favorite version of the Verne classic. Douglas and Mason play their roles extremely well and the story is excellent. Love to watch this one.
