Did You Know?


When Melina (Linda Cristal) takes Admiral Nelson (Richard Basehart) to the cliff overlooking the beach where her father died, he goes down to the shore while she stays atop the cliff. As she watches him, a hand is shown in a close-up that grabs her foot from below and pulls her left foot off the cliff. Then she screams and there is a cut to a medium shot of her about to fall off the cliff, with both her feet suddenly back atop the cliff, with no hand visible. See more »

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea-The City Beneath the Sea
23 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Something caused the destruction of two oceanographic ships and their crew, including a netted bomb that nearly takes out the Seaview and Admiral Nelson (Richard Basehart) wants to know what that is. So Captain Crane (David Hedison) is sent on a mission—to discover who might be responsible for the senseless murders of two innocent crews—to a Greek village nearby where the incidents took place, posing as a lowly deep sea diver, a fisherman looking for work, so that he can garner possible details that might lead to answers. Hurd Hatfield is Zeraff, a very wealthy man seeking Crane's assistance for a job, although he knows about the Seaview's mission and has control over a "city under the sea", equipped with weapons and explosives, including a device which can causes power disruptions in ships which enter a radius near its location. When Crane is captured by Zeraff, Nelson will have to figure out a way to destroy the city and rescue his Captain. Zeraff is a power-hungry madman in the grand tradition of Bond villains, a vast city underwater, with designs on controlling the world through other cities like his, fully equipped with technological advancements that threaten civilization topside. Linda Cristal stars as the innocent sweetheart, Melina, whose mute fisherman/ship repairer father, Dimitri (Al Ruscio) become a laughingstock in the village for claiming to have seen the underwater city, actually helping Crane find the general area leading to Zeraff's headquarters. Melina, herself, after her father's murder, will dive after Crane, becoming a prisoner as well. So Crane has to save his own hide and Melina's, attempting a grand escape, soon encountering Zeraff in one of those familiar fights underwater (think the James Bond movies, "Thunderball" or "Never Say Never Again"). Irwin Allen, disaster movie producer extraordinaire, gets to blow up another city, as the conclusion features lots of models exploding in an obvious underwater tank. This episode takes a while to get going, but does take off once the plot is set up.
