Warren Stevens Tributes

3rd April 2012

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:

Who Played The President?

16th November 2011

We’re having great fun trying to put names to faces for all of the non-credited performers in the Irwin Allen’s productions.  What a challenging task.  Does anyone recognize the man playing the President of the United States in The Return of Captain Nemo?

Scratch Built Nautilus Model

7th June 2010

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.
