20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1916) Jules Verne, Carl Laemmle

Directed by Stuart Paton
Produced by Carl Laemmle

This film became famous for its groundbreaking work in actual underwater photography by George M. Williamson and J. Ernest Williamson. The actual undersea footage was shot in the Bahamas due to the unusually clear water. When this film was remade by Walt Disney 38 years later, they came to this same spot for their undersea footage.
