20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)Survivors of a sinking war ship are taken aboard a mysterious submarine commanded by the strange Captain Nemo. The sub is disguised as a narwhale and is patrolling the seven seas sinking warships. Elaborate Disney version of the Jules Verne story. Watch Kirk Douglas serenade a seal. Yeah, really. Somewhat dated.
