Trivia

Being as this is based on the movie "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (1961), this episode uses a large amount of stock footage from the movie such as shots of the Seaview in the ice flows and the burning sky itself. See more »

Sci-Fi & Disaster
29 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This episode has two scenes that showcase Irwin Allen's unique ability as a showman, his ability to make any footage look and sound so good, an ability that almost no other film/television maker does so well.

Special Scene One: The teaser when we see an internal view of Seaview's glass nose, with the crew looking out of it as the icebergs fall down. This sort of footage, with the doomsday music playing over it, is what Irwin Allen was all about. Then the moment is suddenly turned to black comedy when Admiral Nelson says "When you put ice into a drink it sinks first then rises to the surface". You need to know about Richard Basehart's private life to understand the "black comedy" in that line and I don't think this is the place to go into that.

Special Scene Two: The death scene in the circuitry room. We see no blood. We just hear more doomsday music and a sign saying something like "Don't Touch Machines". This is class act film making!
