Around the World under the Sea

Tagged: Film

Film (1966). Ivan Tors Productions/MGM. Directed by Andrew Marton. Written by Arthur Weiss, Art Arthur. Cast includes Lloyd Bridges, Shirley Eaton and David McCallum. 120 minutes. Colour.

This routine Under-the-Sea melodrama was produced by Ivan Tors, best known for such marine television series as Flipper. After tidal waves, underwater experts use a futuristic submarine to plant a series of earthquake-warning devices along a fault that encircles the world. The characters, dialogue and giant eel are hackneyed, and the special effects cheap. The underwater sequences – not bad – were directed by Ricou Browning. [JB]
