The villain's submarine was modified from a Space:1999 Eagle play-set. The toy was made by Mattel in 1976, two years before the film. The engine section, side cargo doors, command capsule, and framework superstructure from the Eagle are all visible on the modified submarine. See more »

This show had a pretty good premise. It took the Jules Verne's legendary character of Captain Nemo and placed him in the modern day facing various threats to mankind. If C.B.S. who broadcast this as a mini-series back in the 70's had any sense, they would have made it into a regular series. Also, I know the science is pretty bad, but this was an action packed show.
