It was 1954 and I was absorbed by the Saturday matinee, where a buck still covered admission, popcorn, M&M's and a Coke. The movie was the now-classic Walt Disney version of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. American whaler Ned Land, played by chisel-chinned Kirk Douglas, had ventured into the saloon of the Nautilus, Capt. Nemo's submarine. There he had found the immense round, underwater windows that allowed guests to recline on the velvet seats and admire the undersea creatures passing by.
