What can I say? I LOVE this movie! I grew up watching it at my grandmother's on VHS and now that I'm grown with 4 boys, I love it even more. Kirk Douglas (Ned) is as effervescent and charming as ever and James Mason (Captain Nemo), is superb. This movie is full of adventure and a delight to watch every time! The DVD quality is great and I wouldn't hesitate to gift this to any family I know. I think it makes an excellent Christmas gift for almost anyone. And the price is great! A "Whale of a Tale!"
