Added DiffLines:

* ShockAndAwe: The outer hull of the Nautilus can be electrified to administer painful shocks to anything or anyone in contact with it. This capability proves very effective against a tribe of cannibals who climb on board the ship, causing no serious injuries but inducing them all to jump off into the water and get back aboard their canoes and row away. It's initially effective against the giant squid as well, causing it to let go of the Nautilus, but when the squid grabs on again more firmly, the defense system fails and shorts out.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Aronnax has Paul Lukas' Hungarian accent, which doesn't sound anything close to a French one (more like German). Ironically, Peter Lorre, playing Conseil, is also of Hungarian descent, but provides a convincing French accent.

Added DiffLines:

* AgeLift: Arronax and Conseil are played by actors much older (Lukas was 59 and Lorre 50 at the time) than their book counterparts, who are respectively 40 and 30.


Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Nemo is shown using treasure taken from sunken ships as ballast as opposed to water...so how do they dive when the tanks are empty and there are no ships nearby?

The film featured an AllStarCast (Creator/KirkDouglas as Ned Land, Paul Lukas as Professor Pierre Aronnax, Creator/PeterLorre as Conseil, and James Mason as Captain Nemo) and a memorable design for the ''Nautilus'' as well as the memorable giant squid attack. It has become one of Disney's classics.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: In the opening scenes of the movie we see 3 ships sunk or crippled on-screen by the Nautilus, and it's clear that several other ships have met similar fates. But once the main characters come on board, Nemo and his men only attacking one ship on-screen over the course of many months - and dialogue supports that this is the only ship attacked in that time period, so we know he didn't go after any other ships during any time skips.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Not quite, but in the opening scenes of the movie we see 3 ships sunk or crippled on-screen by the Nautilus and it's clear that several other ships have met similar fates in a short amount of time. But once the main characters come on board, Nemo and his men become the Pirates Who Hardly Do Anything, only attacking one ship on-screen over the course of many months - and dialogue supports that this is the only ship attacked in that time period, so we know he didn't go after anything else during any time jumps.

* RaceLift: Captain Nemo, who is definitely Caucasian in this version, as opposed to the AmbiguouslyBrown character in the book.

to:

* RaceLift: Captain Nemo, who is definitely Caucasian in this version, as opposed to the AmbiguouslyBrown character in the book. This version is presumably Polish, as the literary character was originally meant to be, in contrast with the book's Indian, which he ended up being in the final product.
