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.
