CAPTAIN NEMO AND THE UNDERWATER CITY
   Film (1969). Omnia/MGM. Dir James Hill, starring Robert Ryan, Chuck Connors, Nanette Newman, Luciana Paluzzi. Screenplay Pip and Jane Baker, R. Wright Campbell, based on the character created by Jules VERNE. 106 mins. Colour.
   Towards the end of the 19th century a ship sinks in a violent storm. A few survivors find themselves on board a mysterious underwater vessel, the Nautilus, under the command of the legendary Captain Nemo. They are taken to Nemo's underwater city (likeably Victorian in design), where his oxygen-creator transmutes rocks into gold as a side-effect. A morality tale about greed ensues. This UK film is distinctly inferior to Disney's 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1954).
