Shooting 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea underwater in 1954

>> Friday, December 4, 2009

Via friend and fellow Nemo fan Greg Bunch comes this link to a terrific gallery of Life Magazine images from the underwater set of Disney's classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, shot on location in the Bahamas in 1954. The captions are great too: this one explains the challenges the Disney prop crew had in creating scuba suits that looked Victorian but actually worked. And check out the pictures of the prop guys releasing exotic fish bought from local fish markets, just so they would swim by on camera!
