For its first CinemaScope production, the Mouse House turned to Richard Fleischer, son of Disney’s long-time rival and the results are seaworthy and then some. (Fans of Fleischer’s VIOLENT SATURDAY and THE BOSTON STRANGLER shouldn’t shun this kiddie show.) Adapted from Jules Verne’s novel with rare brio and infectious energy, 20,000 LEAGUES also boasts the most distinguished grown-up cast of any vintage Disney picture: Kirk Douglas, James Mason, Peter Lorre, and a killer squid!
