Capital Celluloid 2019 - Day 250: Sat Sep 7

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Fleischer, 1954): Prince Charles Cinema, 3pm

This screening is a 35mm presentation.

Chicago Reader review:
Grandly entertaining 1954 film of the Jules Verne novel, produced by Walt Disney and directed by the tireless Richard Fleischer (who, 30 years later, was still tossing off odd pleasures like Red Sonja and Conan the Destroyer). James Mason is a monomaniacal Captain Nemo; Kirk Douglas and Paul Lukas are his reluctant guests aboard the Nautilus. With Peter Lorre and Carlton Young.
Dave Kehr

Here (and above) is the trailer.
