A replica of the Hyperion airship from the movie was planned for the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California in an unrealized section called Discovery Bay. The original plan was to have the blimp fly out from a replica from this film of Captain Brieux (Jacques Marin)'s hangar. Designs for this attraction were adapted for use in the Discoveryland section at the Disneyland Resort Paris theme park where a replica of the film's French dirigible is an attraction. See more »
The Hyperion's propellers are hand cranked by men on the ground. When the entire ship is viewed at rest, the propellers are nowhere near the ground. See more »
[They have discovered a frozen bay filled with the carcasses of many dead whales]
Where the whales go to die. All those great creatures from every sea, lying there, from the beginning of time.
Sir Anthony Ross:
Just look at all that whalebone! Worth millions of pounds! And heavens knows what the ambergris would fetch.
All that doesn't matter now, does it, father?

I flew the camera ship in the Canadian Arctic scenes
FYI...I flew the camera ship for the Polar Bear and Narwhal scenes. The camera man was Bill Bacon from Squim, Washington. According to my log book, I met Bill in Resolute Bay, NWT on about July 24, 1973. On July 26, 1973 we flew 2+00 hours to Arctic Bay, NWT for staging and fuel. I logged 6+30 hours flying on July 27th, this was en-route from Arctic Bay,NWT to Admirality Inlet for the filming and returning to Resolute Bay. The Aircraft was a Bell 206B (CF-OKU) belonging to Okanagan Helicopters Ltd. A Canadian company out of Vancouver, BC, Canada with a base in Resolute. The Narwhal scenes were filmed with a 35 MM camera, but if I remember correctly Bill shot the Polar bear as an after thought and was filmed with a 16 MM camera.
