The next Profiles in History Hollywood Auction on 28-29 July 2013 features several Irwin Allen items including the original filming miniature of the Nautilus submarine that appeared in Irwin Allen’s The Return of Captain Nemo. Other items in the auction include an original piece of title concept art from the 1961 Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea movie and a metal wrench prop from Voyage and Lost in Space.
Prominent Irwin Allen television guest, Warren Stevens, has sadly passed away at the age of 92 (27th March 2012). He guest starred Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants, as well as The Return of Captain Nemo. Unusually, we’ve struggled to find any obituaries in the mainstream British media. Here are some tributes in the US press:
James Squellati has been working on constructing a scratch built Nautilus model (The Return of Captain Nemo). We very much hope that a model kit manufacturer will some day consider issuing a Nautilus model kit as there is very little available on this model.
David Hedison, Warren Stevens, William Schallert, Julie Adams, Joe Turkel (Land of the Giants “Inside Rail”) and William Smith (Code Red “Trial by Fire”) are scheduled to attend Monsterpalooza at the Marriott Burbank Convention Center on 9-11 April 2010. Moebius Models will also be attending.
News is coming through from several blogs that Warner Bros plan to release several Irwin Allen television movies on DVD in the next month or so. Just hope that this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke considering it is April 1st!!!
This is in addition to The Amazing Captain Nemo announced earlier.
Warner Brothers are releasing The Amazing Captain Nemo on DVD on 6th April 2010
