Le Retour du Capitaine Nemo

>> Thursday, January 15, 2009

Greg says, "Totally check out this YouTube clip for some weird French version of Nemo with a cameo from Burgess Meridith. That movie has to rock. It has underwater lasers and weird stiff fish people or something."



Not only underwater lasers and stiff fish people and Burgess Meredith, but cryogenic freezing chambers, massive explosions, primary-colored jumpsuits, fighting robots, and Jose Ferrer as le Capitaine Nemo. Ah, I've never wanted to understand French so badly in all my life! I'll have to see if I can find a copy of 'Le Retour du Capitaine Nemo' with subtitles.

And why exactly is Burgess Meredith running around barking orders at people?

It looks like I was hornswaggled by the French Dialogue. It looks like it was originally in English, and a made for TV movie. It seems to be the last TV Irwin Allen did. This movie really does just keep getting better, though the chances of now getting to see it have become smaller.

I still think the dubbed French Version with translated subtitles back into English would be the best possible version.

We have to watch this. I'll search the bootleg DVD tables at DragonCon this year. One of them has to have it...
