Filming 20000 Leagues under the Sea - A 1954 LIFE Magazine Special Report - Part Two
Here is the part two of this great 1954 LIFE magazine photographic report on Richard Fleisher's filming of 20000 Leagues under the sea with fantastic pictures mostly shot underwater at the Bahamas.
The two first pictures above and below shows one of the Nautilus crewmen in his diving suits.
Let's dive know, and the four first underwater pictures below show Captain Nemo (recognizable to his helmet with a lamp on the top, different than the one of Nautilus crewmen)
A great series of pictures, now, showing the filming of the famous underwater burial scene.
Some other pictures are showing the film propmen bringing fish for one of the movie's sequence.
An interesting picture showing the different signals for helmet divers during the underwater filming...
More pictures of Nautilus crewmen...
We will end this part two with these pictures of a handsome diver playing one of the Nautilus crewmen.
Hope you enjoyed these rare 20000 Leagues under the Sea filming pictures, and come back soon for the third part as the best is yet to come!
