The scene with the giant bird was from the original draft of the script, which was to have had prehistoric monsters rather than giant oysters and crabs. See more »
After they find the chest from the Nautilus, Mr. Spillit is shown shaving, but just after when they are discussing Captain Nemo, he still has a rather thick beard. Either the blade was very dull or he wasn't really shaving. See more »

This film starts off with adventure and rarely ever lets up. Starting off with a daring hot air balloon escape by Union prisoners from a Confederate prison camp through a treacherous storm which blows them off course until eventually they land on a mysterious island full of strange giant creatures such as a giant crab, a giant bird and giant bees. These creatures are magnificently brought to life by stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen. This one will appeal mostly to those young in heart and spirit. Herbert Lom is quite good in his role as Captain Nemo, a man trying to find a means of destroying the causes of war. Also has a wonderful score by Bernard Herrmann. Great fun.
