good stuff
27 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 88 minute documentary on the Making of 20,000 Leaques under the Sea can be found on the second disc of the 2-dvd set of the aforementioned movie. It features rare interviews with much of the still living cast and is pretty darn informative. It goes into how the project came to be, as well as various remembrance of the filming and historian viewpoints. Liking the movie that it was based on, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this documentary and I would have to problem at all recommending this to anyone, and would do so without any hesitation on my part. Anyone who loves 20,000 leagues owes it to themselves to watch and savor this as well.

My Grade: A
