Did You Know?


On one VHS cover, Keir Dullea's image is a generic photo of astronaut Dave Bowman from 2001: A Space Odyssey with a black mustache and black, wavy hair inserted on his face and head (he plays a Spanish character, but with light hair and mustache in the movie itself). On the double-feature DVD (on the main page) it's simply an image of Dave Bowman. See more »

Good 1970 Underwater Film
22 October 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Enjoyed viewing this film which had a cast of some great film stars who went on to great careers in the film industry. Keir Dullea,(Christofer Perdeger),"Brain Waves",'83, discovered very valuable golden treasure by accident while a murder is being committed almost on top of him. Christofer seeks the assistance of Richardo Montalban,(Alejandro Zayas),"Conquest of the Planet of the Apes",'72, who was for many years searching for this very treasure that Perdeger just found and knows where this sunken treasure can be located. Lana Wood, "Santan's Mistress",'82 gave plenty of beautiful charm to her role. There is plenty of action underwater with plenty of hungry sharks and a great film for the 1970's. In present day life, Lana Wood is struggling with an illness and my thoughts are with her family and I wish her the very best.
