Diving bell had open hatch to sea kept open with pressure in cabin for dives & diving bell moored itself onto an structure submerged. See more »
An open diving bell cannot go very deep unless it is pressurised. For an open diving bell it would require increasing volumes of air to be pumped into it.
Without pressurisation, the air inside the bell would be at the same pressure as the water - it would literally crush the bell but not until all occupants had been squeezed to death. See more »
Are you sure you've got the right outfit on? We're not goin' to a cricket match, old boy.
It's the gear that's been recommended by the Royal Society. That's a rather knowledgeable group. Not that you've ever heard of it.
Well, I can't be a genius about everything, Charles.

What a great film! When ever I watch this movie, I sit with a big grin on my face. This was one of the first movies I saw at the cinema as a kid. This film didn't win any Oscars, but if there had been a category for FUN it would have won hands down. I don't thing this film was ever meant to be taken too seriously. Like many of Doug McClures movies, "At The Earths Core" and "The land that time forgot", made with a hint of tongue in cheek. Made before the onset of cgi effects, this film has an innocent, non-cynical feel. It has Monsters, the lost city of atlantis, guns, fight scenes and more monsters, what more can you ask for in a low budget sci-fi. Films like this are often belittled by people who cannot see beyond their De Niro's and Oscar nominations. The quality of a film, at the end of the day, is about it's entertainment value, hence 10 out of 10.
