Captain Nemo and the Underwater City (1969, GBR) C-105m. SCOPE ** D: James Hill. Starring Robert Ryan, Chuck Connors, Nanette Newman, Luciana Paluzzi, John Turner, Bill Fraser, Kenneth Connor. Disappointing adventure tries to continue or at least remake saga of Jules Verne's Captain Nemo (Ryan), who saves several people from drowning and brings them his underwater fortress. Slow, talky, lacks the spark of the original. Some fairly good editing, but this is lost in lackluster plot. Photographed by Alan Hume.
