V is for Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea

Originally a SF film released in 1961 by 20th Century Fox, 'Voyage' was produced and directed by Irwin Allen, who was later nicknamed "The Master of Disaster" for his work in the disaster film genre. The film was reasonably well received, as it starred Walter Pidgeon and featured Barbara Eden, Peter Lorre and Frankie Avalon. The subsequent TV series was fairly cheap to produce, as detailed sets, props and scale models of the Seaview submarine already existed. Irwin also produced a number of other notable shows, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants.
