Movie-A-Day #163: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961).

June 12, 2011

Today marks the birthday of Irwin Allen, the movie and TV uber-producer/director/writer who gave us “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” (on both the big and small screen), “The Poseidon Adventure,” “Lost in Space,” “Time Tunnel” and so much more. His work was all about spectacle, making him something of the Michael Bay of his time. Except for the fact that Allen’s work managed to find the human faces at the center of all that special effects magic – something Bay has mostly failed to do.
