Around The World Under The Sea


This eel is HUGE!

AROUND THE WORLD UNDER THE SEA is an anemic, harmless, forgettable sci-fi entry that briefly occupied kids in 1966.  Nice color, decent sound effects and a not-bad giant eel are commendable as a team of sub-going scientists set up an earthquake detection system.  A look at its cast shows it was obviously designed as easy box-office bait, what with the TV actors lined up—Lloyd Bridges, Brian Kelly, David McCallum, Marshall Thompson, Ron Hayes—plus the ever-available-for-work Keenan Wynn and Gary Merrill.  The main excuse to watch is a brief view of gorgeous Shirley Eaton in a bikini.  Directed by Andrew Marton, longish at 117 minutes.
