Goofs

When the first sensor is deployed, the escape hatch/sensor room is shown being remotely pressurized to equalize the pressure between exterior and interior so the hatch can be opened, it shows a compressed gas cylinder being crushed due to the pressure differential (improbable but not impossible). Several times during the movie the escape hatch is used to enter and exit the submersible. Yet at no time is is shown the chamber being pressurized, and in fact it shows the scientists immediately opening interior hatches without depressurization or decompression staging. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Margaret E. 'Maggie' Hanford: We're the whole crew?
Dr. Craig Mosby: Well the Gemini capsule only had two.

Entertaining for an 7 year old
22 December 2008 | by rdevine_azSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this as part of a summer movie program in 1963. I got to see 11 movies for $1.00. One movie was shown each Tuesday. So I paid nine cents for it. That was fair.

It was great entertainment for the 7-13 year old crowd. Lloyd Bridges was known for Sea Hunt. Keenan Wynn had been in some TV Westerns so he was a known entity. Flipper (Kelly), Daktari(Thompson) and Man from Uncle(McCallum) hadn't even been broadcast, so most of the cast was unknown.

Bad acting, bad science, great special effects. Everything a 7 year old boy looks for.
