20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)
James Mason would be able to speak about car parts and dumpsters for hours and he’d still make it sound like poetry. Here’s one of his top roles in Disney’s legendary big-screen adaptation of Verne’s book, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Memorable 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea quote:
Captain Nemo: “Think of it. On the surface there is hunger and fear. Men still exercise unjust laws. They fight, tear one another to pieces. A mere few feet beneath the waves their reign ceases, their evil drowns. Here on the ocean floor is the only independence. Here I am free! Imagine what would happen if they controlled machines such as this submarine boat. Far better that they think there’s a monster and hunt me with harpoons.”
