8 Great...Seafaring Movie Explorers in Honor of Columbus Day

Oct 10, 2011 Comments

As much as we love the idea of sailing the ocean blue, the thought of exploring what's under the sea is equally fascinating, and Walt Disney spared no expense to bring the adventure to the big screen nearly 50 years ago. Jules Verne's novel is transformed into a struggle between Captain Nemo (James Mason) and Ned Land (Kirk Douglas), with underseas footage that's as compelling as the dramatic conflicts. The centerpiece is, naturally, the battle between the submarine Nautilus and an outsized sea squid, but the entire movie is a terrific adventure that makes everyone who watches it feel like a true-blue seafaring explorer.
