During World War II, an American pilot and a marooned Japanese navy captain are deserted on a small uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean. There, they must cease their hostility and cooperate if they want to survive, but will they?
Failed pilot for a show that was meant to replace Star Trek after it got canceled. In the future, humans and humanoid amphibians live in cities beneath the sea. Matthews and the crew of his sub Titan must save their city from a saboteur.
This is a compilation of three episodes of the series, "THE TIME TUNNEL". The first was the pilot about a government project. Which is a device that can send people into the future or past.... See full summary »

In the fight scene between Adm. Matthews and Brett in the vault, Brett is thrown against a pile of gold bars, but the entire pile can be seen to start tipping over. Solid gold bars would be too heavy to be pushed over this way. Also, the pile tips without any individual blocks moving out of place, revealing this to be a prop wall, probably made of wood. All the other piles did not topple when pushed against. See more »
Opening credits prologue: JUNE 12, 2053 THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
As a kid I had this movie on Viewmaster in 1972, on 3 reels I really liked it then. Never had it on VHS, but was glad I waited to get it on DVD. Which finally I did. I enjoyed movie when it came out, enjoyed the cast, especially Robert Wagner, Rosemary Forsythe, and Robert Colbert, I really like all the people that were used as guest stars. And I enjoyed the city and that they used the flying sub from "Voyage to the bottom of the sea", in the movie. I liked the sets, the costumes were excellent, the US Navy really should consider naval uniforms like the costume department used in the movie, the music supplied as very good, I certainly wish this had become a Television show, at the time it aired on broadcast I thought it was a Pilot for an upcoming TV show, sadly that never happened.
