20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

1916 G

One of the first epic, big-budget movies of the silent era, this sci-fi classic based on Jules Verne's novel recounts the tale of the notorious, power-mad Capt. Nemo (Allen Holubar). Driven by years of bitterness, Nemo plans to use the Nautilus -- his fantastic, revolutionary submarine -- to rule the waves and exact revenge on the world. The film's astonishing underwater photography, which was far ahead of its time, still inspires awe.
