Summary
An American frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention-- a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious deranged Captain Nemo. When an explosion leaves just three survivors, they become prisoners inside Nemo's death ship on an underwater odyssey around the world from the pearl-laden waters of Ceylon to the icy dangers of the South Pole. They come face to face with exotic ocean creatures and strange sights hidden from the world above. Captain Nemo, one of the greatest villains ever created, takes his revenge on all society. This thrilling drama from 1870 foretells with uncanny accuracy the inventions and advanced technology of the twentieth century
